`I don't know if this is supposed to go here, but I don't really care. I want to say that I disagree heavily with the Browns were not in position to "swing for the fences" with Barkevious Mingo and should have taken the "solid double" in Milliner idea. I am not here to argue over who should/should not have been the pick, that will be discussed ad nauseam. I do, however, find your reasoning for taking Milliner flawed.
I would think a not good team like the Browns are in a perfect position to attempt to grab a "star". To keep your baseball analogy going, It is much easier to score when you have guys who can hit it over the fence than if you have to string together singles.
I applaud the goal of the Browns new regime's goal, which is apparently "go 12-4 and challenge for Super Bowls". To do that you need to grab a Home Run hitters, and to get those you need to take players who have the physical ability to do that. To be a great team you need great players, if you settle for singles, doubles, and sac bunts you might go 9-7 and back in to the playoffs.
