Last year was an example of going and getting the guy we want. We traded up to get Forbort, Tiffoli, and Kitsyn.
LOL! I agree in going after the player you covet. However if not available the extra picks come in handy later especially if we can make some of them 2012 picks. At next yrs trade deadline a couple extra 2nd or 3rd picks will really help land some rental type players. The added picks also enable LA to take a few gamble/risky picks.
I also see your point and in past yrs, like last yr, I preferred it. However LA needs to take a look at the next two drafts as DL doesn't seem to deal any of HIS prospects so maybe we move picks instead?
