The additions are better than the subtractions but none of the first four guys on that list is anything special and the last two are replacing guys who were probably no better than they are. I would group Napoli with the "nothing special" guys if they acquire him.

    Baltimore has lost Reynolds, Thome, Randy Wolf, Robert Andino, and Joe Saunders and added Trayvon Robinson. They re-signed Nate McLouth. Arguably, they've gotten worse.

    Tampa has added some unknowns from Kansas City, Yunel Escobar and James Loney, but they've lost a slew of guys: Jeff Keppinger, BJ Upton, JP Howell, Kyle Farnsworth, Carlos Pena, Luke Scott, Joel Peralta, and James Shields. They're definitely worse than last year.
    The only person in baseball I can't stand worse than Javier Vazquez and Nick Johnson is Stephen Drew.

    Dempster and Hanrahan bring their credentials to Boston but Drew is on my permanent no-draft list.


    And so, a new era begins.....

    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!

    I think some picks can be traded? Not sure how it works though.

    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.

    Knowing the overall *shape* of an idea, argument, situation requires as many facts, models, opinions as you can take/make to see a whole.
