I may go over to Berry Street this weekend just to see him loading his backpack with school supplies.

What a missed opportunity. For him.

Onward and upward.

UncleMo, we'll get our own pick, likely late in round one. We'll get the "14A" pick as well, for failing to sign Purke. If we offer arb to Byrd and he goes elsewhere, we'll get a supp 1st.

If we sign someone else's Type A that was offered Arb, we'll forfeit our own 1st (the one late in the round). Does that all make sense?

The paragraph where you discuss compensatory picks and forfeiting same due to a Type A free agent signings is what I would like explained in depth, please.

Thanks, Jamey, for once again expressing the feelings of the fan so eloquently and for putting things in perspective. Any "player" who wouldn't want to join this team right now due to issues of mind-boggling amounts of money is not one we want around anyway. Good riddance, I say. Beyond that, thanks for the backstory on Richardson!
