Wonder if he’s starting to dread hearing his phone ring…….

Since the the preponderance of all players come from the top 50 picks and there’s a dramatic drop off as you go. I’d go 1-5, 6-10, 11-15, etc. Send me a prospect guide and I’ll do it for you.

On what Tempman89 said…..how much fallout is there on losing this pick as far as dollars go?

Since losing this pick appears to be polarizing, I’d love to read your take on it from both the pick itself AND the dollars.

Just something to do. Although the MLBTR transaction tracker makes it seem pretty moot at this point. Anyway a lot of noise with his trades.

The trades I see of significance fall into 4 categories:

Key Piece Traded Away: Bay, Nady, McLouth and Sanchez

Surprising Return: Burnett, McDonald

Disappointing Give Away: Bautista

Last Trade Deadline: Snider, Sanchez, Rodriguez

To me the other 50+ trades of his are just noise. There are no names that just pop out at you. We could quibble about the LaRoche return or about the Paulino/Jaramaillo swap or about quite a few others but at the end of the day, IMO the 10 trades above is what defines his trade record.

That’s a very big deal with this team, no matter how small the actual deals are. Great stuff.

The 33rd pick is worth over 1 million allocated draft dollars. Now our budget is smaller for signing people for over slot. That is the fallout from this
