    That has to be the same picture twice. I can't tell these guys apart.

"If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I say yes, but Gordon would be my 2nd choice (based on who would likely be available).
    Yes.

    I am a twin, and when we were little my mom and dad were walking through Gatlinburg when a woman walked up to her... her frist question was "are they twins?" My mom said yes. Then she asked the dumbest question I've ever heard... "Do they have the same father?" Wow. So, maybe they are twins, but have different fathers...

    Assuming Gordo is the pick, does anyone think that the pick would be different if Wayne was in charge? I realize that the feeling is that Buckley has full control of the draft, but I would assume that it isn't FULL control.

    That's a good one. I can relate as I have a twin sister, and often get asked "Oh are you two identical twins?"

    I mean, really?

    If we draft Alonso should we expect Votto to move to the OF in a few years?

    For some reason, I think it would be the same. I don't have anything to go off of, though.

    You should say "Yeah, other than one small detail..."

    That comment by acredsfan was hillarious too..
