    I think the Legends and Angels are proud co-owners of my soul.

    • If you think the Knights own a lot...I think Legends had at least 1/3 of the picks in 1967.

        Well, maybe people have learned from their mistakes now? Or maybe they enjoyed putting on some great runs by selling off draft picks and will continue to do this? Interesting because there are different measures of success in this game for all of us.

          Different things work for different owners. Certain teams will continue to stock pile draft picks and others will continue to deal them to always keep their team in contention. No real right or wrong way. Just depends on what works. I'm more of the stockpiler myself. I want my team to be set up a certain way and believe the best way to do that is draft the players myself.

          • the 27th overall pick

            I thought the Leafs owned this pick but there is some question about that...can anyone document this for me?

              This pick was traded to me in the Osteen deal. You got my 1st round pick, I got Osteen and your 2nd.

                        --Kirby was an excellent pick. He eats innings for your first 2 seasons and will be a nice #2 behind Blue when you should be ready to make a run in 1971.

                          Yar, 'twas. I'd like to make another second round pick though. I'm game for an even-up trade, folks. You receive the player, I receive the draft pick.

                          • Lew trades his (mine) second round pick this year and 2nd round pick next year for my 1st and 3rd round pick next year.

                            • Legends confirm this trade: the second round pick I have coming next, received from Kyle in trade, and my second rounder in 1970 for Kyle's first rounder and third rounder in 1970.

                              • Good trade for both Kyle and Lew. If I'm correct in guessing who Kyle will pick, he'll have probably improved his 1969 team more than anyone else.
