Going back as far as 1988 the only 3rd rounders of note are Comrie, Poti and Maltby. 26 years, 32 picks counting the two from last year.

Getting Scrivens' jock strap for a 3rd round pick was brilliant, trading away anyone who can walk and chew gum at the same time for a 3rd round pick is an insult.
So you want us to stand pat? If he can unload some expiring contracts for picks its a win. Where does he state he plans on using them and not trading them?
