I just posted it before it was updated. I appreciate all your articles and I was/am still slightly confused by the whole compensation process, especially after this year’s changes. Thanks!

There were four free agents, and three of them signed. Madson is the only one remaining. If he signs with a team in the 16-31 range, there will be an extra pick added to the first round. By comparison, if Fielder signs with one of those teams, no extra pick is awarded. The team just gives Milwaukee their draft pick.

Or was it that you get a pick directly ahead of the team that signed the player? Not sure how the picks go now but they used to go by elias rankings regardless of record, but good chance I’m wrong about that.

The compensation picks are given out based on the reverse win-loss percentage from the previous season so Doumit’s pick would be ahead of the pick for Dotel, Ellis etc. because the Cardinals clearly had a better record then the Pirates.
