MG, we both dislike Feaster's trade history, but Weisbrod looks to be a very good drafter. He's had a large hand in selecting quite a few of the B's young guys. The fact that our recent picks have received such accolades and recognition on the WJ stage and their respective leagues are very encouraging signs. They scout these guys, not us, the fact they've already found several gems gains a lot of my confidence.
Maybe that's why it feels better. Most picks lately have grown and get better as they develop. With A by getting an overhaul in terms of policy, the development process should only get better
