Lets get this thing wrapped up early, I have a sixer of coors in the cooler that won't drink themselves. - Dave Gettleman
That's been my thought since yesterday too. I honestly think he isn't very impressed with this draft overall so he is trying to get what he deems to be the can't miss players he could realistically get this year...given that we drafted so late in a weak draft....
I just don't think Gettleman was that happy with this draft overall, and he even said in his presser that they expected some of the Jrs. to come out but they ended up staying which hurt this draft...oh those little clues...Gman sure isn't Hurney/Fox.
The way the picks fell it's almost as if GMan saw the future because damn...literally every pick in every round that I would have done were gone before our slot...so with his super powers he seemed to know that his picks would be gone by the 25th in each round and was like fug it I'm going in.
For those mad at these trades....literally just look at each round and how it fell....almost literally every pick anyone wanted has been gone before our selection in each round...I dare say we HAD to move up to get these guys.
This is Dave Gettleman saying fug this draft...this draft is weak so he's going quality over quantity...and the way the picks are going....we wouldn't have gotten who I wanted anyway so it's whatever...even in the 4th doods are coming off the board that would have still been here in the 6th if it's last years draft....
Seriously Crowder is great and I love/wanted him...but in the 4th? This draft is weaker than I thought.
Well the trade is sitting a bit better for me now since Smith and Fisher were both gone by the 57th pick...can't be as mad now...and we may have stolen the aints player...they totally reached on their pick.
