    I get why Casey Martin fell, but still might take a chance in the second round, assuming they think they can bring the strikeouts down. If they pick Blaze Jordan (and he might be a nice heir apparent to Votto), they need to get him to tone down his name, maybe to something like Firebringer James or Wolf Blitzer. Cole Wilcox is a guy I'd looked at earlier and liked but had forgotten.

    Go hard, draft Jared Kelley, see if a 1.5 million dollars doesn't change his mind. Punt the last two rounds and sign him for first round money if need be.

    If there's a draft to go for quality over quantity, this is it.

    I'm sure someone else will do this before we do.

    I saw a few post in yesterday's thread referring to a "chalk pick." I had not heard this before. What does it mean?

    Basically that they are picking who everyone is expecting them to pick. Joe Burrow was the "chalk" pick for the bengals at #1.

    The term comes from sports betting. Back in the old days when bookies used chalkboards to update odds. The favorite got more action, and more odds updates, so that eventually it looked just like chalk smears. So chalk became a slang term for "heavy favorite".

    So a chalk pick is just an expected favorite outcome.

    If Kelley isn't there, or he's entirely unsignable, then going Lonsway at 48 and Mace at 65 (if there) would, in my mind, be a successful day. Reach a bit for Burleson in the 3rd round and I'd be ecstatic.
