Did everyone already know this?

Maybe I was out of the loop on this one.

Which part? I certainly knew about the marijuana test and nightclub incident that led to Holmes' exit. I did not realize that the pick we traded for ended up actually being used to draft AB, no. I imagine there was a bit of serendipity in that. I highly doubt anyone in the front office had the prescience to see what they might actually do with a sixth round pick from AZ, that it would be AB they ended up drafting with it, let alone that he would turn out as well as he has. Oh well, sometimes it's better to be lucky than good...

Don't forget Holmes' arrests before he showed up. Also, the dude posted a pic of himself nekkid on the internet. Seems he had a lot in common with another Holmes...

Ideally, I'd love to have had BOTH of them, but this isn't a perfect world, so AB is the better choice if you have to take one.
