Beat the odds. I wonder what they are of picking sixth for instance? Five teams off the board by then. I guess it helps if teams with many balls all pick first. So the answer is, depends.

Stupid.While I love the Orioles to death, they don't deserve the top pick.

And while they may have gamed har har, the system just a little bit back in the day, they deserved at least a strong chance of getting the top pick. Have a lottery but have it among the bottom 4 or 5 finishers from the previous year-not 17 or 18 .

Whatever it takes. If the Orioles snuck in for the top pick, the odds are still for the top deserving teams will follow in order. So they go 17th,1st, 2nd etc. They're trying to make it a little less likely that a team will tank the last month to game the top pick. I don't see it really making a difference. If I have almost no chance of picking worse than say third, I'm tanking all the way. I make a big deal out of tracking our slot every year, but in reality, give or take a couple of slots is probably not so significant.

With the larger bases and limited pickoff attempts, maybe they should draft guy's with a lot of speed.
