Feel free to pick, whenever Tim!

I think all the traded picks are in the statslab, but if you made a trade you may want to double check.

Okay, I picked.  I went with pitcher Brian Harris.  He needs a nickname though.  I assign him the nickname of "Claw".

4 years of picking #1 and there was never a pitcher available for me anywhere near that good (speaking from a development standpoint).   :'(

Harris is 5-7-5.  Looking at his player card, Boganegra was 5-7-3 by the end of his first year.  He either had some good development in that first year, or he was pretty close.

This is the third player I've owned who was a former #1 pick.  One I drafted (Grayton) and one I traded for (Dacio Herrera).  Those two players were disappointments.  Hopefully, the third time is the charm.

I think when I drafted them they were all 2's in control.

Looks like the draft order didn't stick like it should have.  I'll get it fixed.

I selected SP Fish Gonzalez. Hope he develops alongside Parker and company. I was hoping Harris would fall to #2. Washington at #4 is up.

Heard at the draft...
