Saying he did a great job GETTING them is silly. What exactly did he do? Did he call up the local mob and have them threaten any GM who looked at any of his picks? Did he do some backroom wheeling and dealing to make sure his picks were still on the board?
No all Timmins did was wait his turn & sweated bullets hoping and praying he had at least one of his choices when his pick came around.
Now did Timmins make excellent choices? The consensus is a resounding yes but he did nothing to GET, to make sure those players were still there.
Now Sam Pollock was someone that made sure he GOT the players he wanted.
Do you see the difference?
