Since there is overlap between the two groups, a total of 14 teams were in the lottery. The teams are then assigned probabilities – like the NBA lottery – based on their 2012 W-L record. In total 12 bonus draft picks are awarded.

There are six picks after Round 1, and they went to COL, BAL, CLE, MIA, KC, and MIL. Five of those six were five with the worst W-L records, but Baltimore got lucky in the lottery and jumped a bunch of others.

In the second phase, following Round 2, the order was SD, ARI, STL, TB, PGH, and SEA. The Cardinals were a bit lucky and jumped a few teams.

Cinci and Oakland, who were down at the bottom of the probability ranking, along with StL and Baltimore, did not get lucky and ended up with nothing.

I dont want us to trade him, I think he can be the bridge between Martin and Mcguire. Sanchez learns from Martin,, Reese learns from Sanchez.

I guess they fit in as one of the 10th smallest markets, can’t believe it is by revenue.

the Bucs probably qualify under both counts along with As, Royals and Rays.

The Bucs are probably always going to qualify to be in the lottery as long as criteria stay the same.

Maybe the Bucs will get the first competitive balance pick after they win the World Series.

Since I could easily see the Bucs having done the same with that pick had they kept it, I am not so sad to have seen it go. The domino effect of taking Krook might have caused them to pass on Blake Taylor, although there were guys there I would have liked.
