Hopefully, Huntington has given Appel/Boras an offer for ~$3.5M, that drops to slot with 24 hours to go, which should allow negotiations with Buehler to proceed without worrying about whether Appel signs or not.

I call it the NL Central Lottery as the Pirates, Reds, Brewers, and Cards (don’t understand that one) are in the lottery. Others include Tampa, Kansas City, Oakland, and the like.

These are bonus picks, similar but not alike to the comp pick system.
