    WHOA, seems like a rather steep price to pay for Bob Johnson. Three good seasons. But I know you'll be in the championship race those three years so the price is worth it to you. I would've given Roger Nelson for that high a pick, but he only gives two good years - but that 1972 season he has is tremendous.
    --Bob Johnson was the guy I was targeting with the 12th pick in the first this year, before Harrah slipped and altered my plan to focus on pitching for 70-71 with my picks this year. I'll just consider Harrrah by 72 #1 instead.
    --I ended up getting pretty much everything I wanted in this draft (well there is still one guy I'd like to complete the master plan). Johnson is a TOR SP in 70 with Roberts also a solid rotation option and Klimkowski a top reliever. Roberts is the TOR guy in 71, with Johnson a 4/5 SP and Klimkowski a decent bullpen arm. I think I'm going to have to go into a rebuilding mode in 72 so Nelson would not have had nearly the appeal of Johnson.

The only pick left to make in the first two rounds is the Knights, who have my second rounder via trade. I presume the compensation pick for the Redbirds will be on the 8 hour clock, as will all of the remaining selections.

      There were some nice picks that went late, and a couple of guys who went early that surprised me. I will finally get a pick (and very likely my only one) after six more selections, so please leave me someone with at least one decent season, huh guys?
      --I passed your pick along to JW, so he has the last pick of the 2nd. I'll be picking for Scott and also own the Thunder's 3rd rounder so we'll be to the Wranglers by a few minutes after 8.

      • Well, it looks like nothing has happened yet so we're going to take another pitcher whose WHIP belies his ERA: SP Reggie Cleveland.

        Cleveland is an innings eater with decent to very good WHIP from '71-'74. He is a tradeable commodity, though he has resign value for us.

                  • Since the first two rounds are now completed, that puts us on the eight hour clock. I show the Wranglers as having the next pick, unless they traded and I didn't catch it (missed two so far - a lot of trading going on!). I'll check in later to see if it's down to my pick yet.

                    • --Wranglers is correct. Unless I missed a trade too:cap:. There has been alot of movement in this draft - with at least a few picks moved more than once.

                            Wondered when he would go. Not much value until 1974 really, but of course HUGE resign value. Definitely a long range pick, though.

                              • Badgers select Gene Garber.

                                As a side note, Gene Garber and my 2nd pick this round is available (along with everybody else, of course).
