That's not a point. Aside from what Daver said. If you want to call it a bad pick, or one you don't agree with, fine. Few will disagree with you, especially considering, if he was drafted to be traded, all we got was Robby Alomar and he didn't do a whole lot to help us at the time.
However, that's not what you said. You are asking if Ring for Alomar was on the same level as Garland for Karchner. And unfortunately, that's a ridiculous comparison.
