lets not go too far yet. this team still needs some top level prospects, of the bluechip kind.

as for doing this last year it wasnt gonna happen.

this year you have two factors that helped the returns:

1. a perceived "weak" draft

2. teams going for broke with a lockout coming.

getting a second rounder this year would have meant getting a third last year or worse.

i am of the belief that there are no weak drafts, just drafts that require some more work and a deeper look. if this is such a draft and the rangers play their cards right, their timing might be better than you think.

you dont win with the pitch the batter knows is coming, you win with the pitch he doesn't.
