If a team has a top 10 pick, and a signing grants a compensation pick, then that would push us down the pecking order as top 10 first rounders default to their next pick (more than likely 2nd round). However, there aren’t many guys projecting as top 125 paid players that are free agents on teams that are likely to finish in the bottom 3rd teams in the league.

This pick should be 33 come next June.

It would be great to squeak into the playoffs this year and thn still have 3 of the top 40 picks next year. Getting the #2 takes the sting off of not getting Appel and gives us more flexibility with our money next year…or maybe even helps us not give up as much of our minors at the deadline this year.
