Hopefully it is just fatigued. I still hate that draft in 05. That was one of the most loaded drafts in the last 10 years, and we use our top pick on a guy that had not pitched in a year. I remember hearing the rumors the few weeks before that we were eyeballing Townsend, and it about made me sick. If we had picked him the year before, it would not have bothered me as he is very talented, but I just hated the fact that he had been out a year, and we picked him over some great offensive talent such as Maybin, Bruce, and or McCutcheon. That was also the year our 3rd round pick was Bryan Morris who was our draft and follow, but we could not come to a deal due to him having such a super 06 season in college. We even had him signed in August of 05 before the idiot owner(I refuse to say his name ever again) backed out.
