Usually I agree. I just don't believe in the people in this organization.
Buckley seems to draft for need when it's wrong to (Stubbs in 2006, Mesoraco in 2007) and pass on the need when it was right (Beckham in 2008, Green in 2009). Regardless, I'll say again that I like Leake, so I'm not broken up over that one.
