Lincecum, dammit

First, I'd like to congratulate Timmy for being selected to receive the 2008 Cy Young Award.  Second, I'd like to ackowledge that Drew Stubbs just might be a major league ballplayer after all...and i'd seriously like to see him start in center Opening Day.  Third, I usually play a stupid game on draft days.  I try to come up with whom I believe my favorite team should draft based on the players available at the time of their first round selection.  I'm pretty sure I could have outselected Mikey Brown (Steven Jackson, dammit!) but my results for the Reds might mediocre.  And I usually have NO idea who anyone is selected below the 2nd round, so this isnt a Bill Simmons style pimping for a GM job ovah here.  Here's my halfcrocked selections over the past several seasons:

 

2008:  Aaron Crow RHP Missouri (Alonso)

2007: Casey Weathers RHP Vanderbilt  (the HS catcher guy)

2006: Lincecum (Stubbs)

2005: Christopeher Volstad RHP HS.  I was hoping Cameron Maybin was gonna slip to Reds.  (Jay Bruce)

2004: Jered Weaver RHP. Boras be damned. (Homer Bailey.  But I was aligned with the pick as option 1a)

2003: Cant Remember. (Ryan Wagner)

2002: Prince Fielder 1B.  (Chris Gruler) 

 

Clearly this was a post to stall doing more housework.  Nothing like having work closed for business and the kiddos in school all day. Tough gig, right?  : )

 

Coming this weekend:  this offseason's first SIS, as promised to jch.
