View Full Version : Draft Question

09-05-2007, 09:34 AM
Seeing as this is the first time in a long long time the sox will have a top 5 draft pick, I had some questions on the draft. Does the draft order go straight by record, meaning Tampa at 1 and the Sox at 2? Or is there a lottery like the NHL and NBA? Also, do rounds 2 and on stick with the same order?

In reverse order of finish.

They used to alternate between AL and NL teams in ascending records, but I believe that is no longer the case, just straight records from worst to best.

Yes, reverse order of finish. Worst records to best in the regular season. Then there are a bunch of sandwich picks between the 1st and 2nd rounds under the new FA compensation plan, then round 2 goes in the same order as round 1.
