OK, looking at the Draft board, why are there 32 first round picks this year? I get that Toronto's pick at 22 was for their unsigned 1st round pick, Beede, last year, so that adds 1 extra pick in the round, so where is the other coming from? I see the other picks that changed hands are all for free agent compensation; Fielder, Pujols, Cuddyer, and Papelbon... But those are picks moving from one team to another, not creating more out of thin air. So where is this mysterious extra pick and why is it there?
