Thanks, Abadejo, for your honest observations. I had sent an e-mail quite a few days ago, had second thoughts, and then deleted it. (The message title is still posted.) My gripe is that Compton, who is a good guy, started "tanking" with over fifty games left in the season...kind of a waste, I think. At the time, the draft picks weren't even posted. He has most likely the first and second picks in the '51 draft, and there are two really good players available. Truthfully...his trade with the LA club is peculiar...especially with regard to the amateur draft (Picks 5,4,3,2 for #1.) Maybe the LA owner is naive and easily fooled. I have ALWAYS enjoyed competing against Compton, but he is cagey and you must watch his every move. I think he pulled a fast one on LA. Sorry Compton.
