Is the waiver to re-draft just for first rounders?

What is he going to do if he doesn’t like his next offer – play independent ball or sign in Korea? Then the team that doesn’t sign him gets the same pick next year. The leverage is no longer with the agents and the athletes need to realize that.

Also, Rendon was the ‘clear’ #1 going into 2010.

Long way to go.
