    Default 2017 Draft

    The reason why we haven't traded the pick

    Typically, the Competitive Balance Lottery has been held in late July. Introduced when the current Collective Bargaining Agreement began in December 2011, the lottery gave teams that have either one of the 10 smallest markets or 10 smallest revenue pools a chance to obtain extra Draft picks. Six picks have been awarded after each of the first and second rounds. Any teams that received revenue-sharing funds that didn't fit in either group of 10 have been added to the mix for the picks following the second round, or Competitive Balance Round B.

    I was using past tense because the future of the Lottery is a bit up in the air, because the current Agreement will expire this year and a new one will have to be collectively bargained by Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association. As part of those negotiations, it's possible the format of the Lottery will change in 2017. As a result, both MLB and the MLBPA agreed to postpone the Lottery until Jan. 25, 2017, to give them time to adjust to any changes.

    Looks like with a month to go its already down to DL Hall or Trevor Rodgers. They like a few HS OF but doubtful any will be around at #13. Gonna be a normal draft for us tho it looks like

    Both HS LHP pitchers the difference is Hall is 6'0 190(think Scott Kazmir) and Rodgers is 6'6 190(think Andrew Miller). Rodgers also might cost less

    NEW BA Mock out and has us with D.L. Hall and Heliot Ramos.

    Looks like our 1st pick will be either Hall or Trevor Rodgers. KC who picks after us loves Rodgers so. If Jeff keeps the 1S Pick it looks like he might actually consider talented HS guys. Names that keep popping up are Heliot Ramos,Mark Vientos,Jacob Heatherley

    I don't wanna jinx it BUT some talk is that he wants to leave the new owners some guys for the future so he might actually draft talent this year and maybe even next(If he is still owns the team in June). He is still staying within budget which is $8,928,200 and won't overpay for guys after Rd10 BUT he understands none of these guys that will be around at #13 can help the team in the next 2 years and is unlikely to trade any of them because new ownership should be agreed to before next season.(When say agreed to I mean they will have a deal in place but Jeff will still be in charge of team)

    One reason they wanted Seth Romero is Jeff thought he could help the team over the next 2 years but between his problems and Jarlin Garcia locking down the lefty in the pen job and Locke coming back they have pretty much taken him off the board for now. They might take a shot at him at #36 but doubtful

    I wouldn't touch Seth Romero. Not because of his attitude but because how strict milb drug testing is. They'll kill his development because of the ganja.

    Well Jeff liked him because quickest guy to Majors at #13-DL Hall/Rodgers will both be taking 3 or 4 years. He thought last month that this was a good team. But ya Romero has weed problems(we do draft those those-Copeland/Soltis),weight problems(Naylor) and attitude issues. They won't touch him at #13 BUT if he is there at #36 or Rd 2 and he gave them a deal I could see them taking a chance.
