It also should be noted that in that same time period Homer also obtained three first round picks. But that doesn't count right...because he traded away some?
Anyway, I will stick with my philosophy of going for it when close. You hoard your draft picks. Both ways will probably yield the same number of Cups. Zero.
You're also forgetting the hordes of 2nd rounders he traded away...it goes beyond first rounders. We have basically been non-participants in a couple drafts, while also trading away prospects. It's a terrible recipe.
My way mirrors Detroit, but the way. They've managed to do just fine, eh? Much better than Homer's method.
Saturday night, I like to raise a little harm. I'll sleep when I'm dead.
