Comments about this signing from other teams fans on mlbtr are funny.
Leo's Thought Of The Day
So excited that the Yankees get this draft pick from the Nationals. 3 top picks are awesome! and makes me look forward to watching this years draft. I was really happy with the Ty Hensley selection and having three more picks means this next draft will be ideal and the system will be retooled. The Yankees can afford to take high upside.
The bullpen options shake up to include
Rivera, Robertston, Aardsma, Chamberlain, Logan, Phelps, Eppley, Rapada, etc.
The Yankees win by this loss of Soriano. Free draft pick. Thanks Washington!
The only tradeable picks are the competitive balance picks, which are 6 picks coming immediately after the sandwich pick round and another 6 immediately after the second round. The lowest revenue/market teams in baseball are entered into a lottery to determine selection order (teams receiving a pick in the first allotment are not eligible for the second one so it's not possible to get multiple picks).

With the Yankees stockpiling picks, that also means their spending limits as set by MLB are increasing substantially. It wouldn't surprise me if some team blows their wad on Mark Appel, and the Yankees are in pretty good position if he falls to them.
