The choice to take Alonso takes undue abuse on this board; these picks haven't even had a reasonable amount of time to develop. The expectations around that pick is ridiculous; what has Beckham done anyway? Nothing overly fantastic...it's not like he's Lincecum...
    Jermaine Dye was a "legitimate" LF last year and is unemployed this year.

    And how large was last year's sample?

    And I never said he was the absolute wrong pick. I think it could have been him, Beckham or Smoak.

    But hey keep bringing up the Stubbs/Lincecum thing because I mention Lincecum all the time. (In fact, I haven't in quite a while, probably not since 2008, but don't let that stop you.)
    Suck it up cupcake.

    Of course they make mistakes. I just don't get the idea where the Reds have already completely failed that pick like some talk about. It isn't like we drafted Kyle Skipworth that season.
    Mauer wasn't the BPA.
