Per Mark Zuckerman:

Notable Nats drafted in the 6th round or later ...
Michael A. Taylor .8
Aaron Barrett .2
Tommy Milone 4.7
John Lannan 6.8
Craig Stammen 8.0
Robbie Ray 9.1
Tyler Moore -2.5
Steve Lombardozzi -1.5
Brad Peacock 5.3

--------

In 15 years the Nats have drafted five guys after the 5th with even mediocre numbers, I've got to think that is near the bottom of the league. A team built by tanking for draft picks and high dollar free agent signings can only benefit by scaling back on the draft I would think.

I get the fact that MLB has a business to run. I'm a 100% red blooded capitalist. So I get it. My question/concern is: how does this impact the teams that are not in the budget stratosphere. Are The Nats (and most other teams) at a competitive disadvantage going up against clubs like NYY, Boston, Cubs and LAD? I figure if youre a hot shot prospect coming out of college you're gonna be more inclined to sign with a team like them. Hate to be a KC fan, teams like them would seem to have an even bigger disadvantage.

MLBTradeRumours.com excerpt:

...perhaps teams will find some success competing with geography, promises of advancement and opportunity, and other creative inducements. Manfred will no doubt need to be proactive in policing this arena. There’s huge potential upside to be had, which creates some potentially worrying incentives.

Finding value in the draft has long been a chief aim of baseball ops departments. Now they’ll have never-before-seen chances to sign an unlimited number of players for bargain prices. That’ll involve recruitment, of course, but there’s a rare possibility for major imbalance in the talent haul.

Unless you're a senior with no eligibility left, then go back to school if you're not picked.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

I havent read alot about this so far, but maybe this is a good thing for The Nats. These college kids have grown up in the Strasburg-Harper-Soto Era and can ID with The Nats even more since they won the WS. So if The Nats can draw top talent from free agent kids than yeah sounds good to me.

Excerpt from NBCSports:

...the new draft rules will allow teams to sign an unlimited number of un-drafted players for $20,000. For comparison, last year, sixth-round bonus slots ranged from a high of $301,600 to a low of $237,000. The smallest bonus through the first ten rounds of this year’s draft was slotted at $142,500.

Given the massive falloff in bonus money for comparable talent, scores if not hundreds of players who would otherwise be drafted will flock to junior colleges where they will be eligible to play for one year and re-enter next year’s draft, which will be far more crowded even if they expand it back up to 40 rounds (don’t bet on that happening). Other players will decide to go to four-year colleges and put off a professional career, though obviously not all players who might’ve been drafted this year will be able to find such slots.

Of the players who do not or cannot go to college, many will be forced, due to the low bonuses, to work full-time jobs in the offseason to make ends meet, detracting from their training regimens. That has always been necessary for amateur free agents or late-round draftees, but now it will be the case for frontline talent as well. Other players may leave the U.S. and attempt to catch on in Japan, Korea, or Taiwan. Many players may give up playing baseball entirely. Regardless of where any specific player goes, this will, overall, reduce the amount of talent in American professional baseball.

It might also help the small market clubs if a lot of players choose to sign with their local teams. But overall I don't see this having a big impact.

No worries. I'm sure Doolittle can pay them whatever money they lost out on.

No money for them, they might not spend it right. Once they sign they"ll get rent credits, food credits, and clothes credits. Extra credits if they are willing to report on their teammates.
