    --It actually left him with 2 of his "big 6" at pick #7. Your window is actually up JW, so please break the suspense.

    He was the other choice in my spot. It was between him and John, and I need pitching. Hated to bypass him, though!

    --Good choice, JW. Willie the Wonder was a favorite of mine as a kid. Perhaps we can deal.

    --If you're planning to use Hart in the OF Horton is redundant. Your pitchers would strike if you had them both out there.

    You think so, Mark? Could be, but he sure was a big bopper. My main reservation was you only got four years out of Horton, but five out of John. And like I said, I needed pitching.

    Dude - Nice pick on Carty. Check with Mark to make sure that missed season in 67 or 68 won't count against his six year clock!

    The Legends, having missed out on second baseman Pete Rose, decide to grab...


    RON HUNT while still available.

    Ouch, that hurts! He wouldn't have been as high on my list if I knew that. Dude will only get about 3 1/2 years out of him. But great years, to be sure!
