Draft Order Tracker updated


Just a heads up, our 2010 Draft Order Tracker has been updated to include all of the Type-A and B free agents that were offered arbitration yesterday. As you know, I’ll update that sucker as free agents change teams and draft picks move around as compensation.


  1. It’s nice to see us back at the bottom where we belong. Bottom of the draft board of course.

  2. Refresh my memory, Mike:

    How is the Sandwich pick round ordered? Is it by the Elias rating of the player signed, or by team W/L record like the other rounds?

    • A.D. says:

      It looks like from last year’s draft that its team W-L record with A’s going 1st then B’s

    • Rose says:

      The order of the supplemental round between the first and second rounds is determined by inverse order of the previous year’s standings. All the Type A picks are done first, and then the order resets for all the Type B compensation picks.

      Teams can also earn compensation for unsigned picks from the previous year’s draft. If a team doesn’t sign a first or second round pick, they will get to pick at the same slot plus one the following year. For example, if the team with the #5 pick does not sign that player, they would have the #6 pick the following year. The regular draft order would continue around those picks. For compensation for not signing a third round pick, teams would get a pick in a supplemental round between the third and fourth rounds. If a team fails to sign a player with one of these compensated picks, there is no compensation the following year.


    • Mike Axisa says:

      Type-A’s before Type-B’s, and it goes by the reverse order of the standings, not Elias rankings. Also, it has to cycle through each team before a team can pick twice.

  3. A.D. says:

    And there’s a max of 23 picks between the 1st and 2nd round

    • So, spinning it forward, assuming that all the 23 Type A and B free agents sign somewhere, we’re looking at the following for the 32nd pick forward (not counting which 10 picks are directly changing hands from one team to the other, of course):

      32 Yankees

      • king of fruitless hypotheticals says:

        sorry…i’m sure there’s something really interesting there, but unfortunately all i can see is the giant neon sign that says ‘wtf is wrong with the jays?’

        i need new glasses :(

  4. Evil Empire says:

    Is it too early to start talking about what the first pick for the Yankees might be?

    Is there someone specific who could realistically fall to the Yankees that is worth coveting?

  5. theyankeewarrior says:

    I am so mad at the Mets for trading Wagner for nothing and letting the Sox get 2 picks. Does anyone else share this anger?

    • Yeah, totally, but I got over it when the deal happened. I never really got it from the Mets’ side – they were never going to get anything great in return for Wagner and they were throwing away the compensation picks, and it’s not like they saved that much money that it should have mattered to them. So, yeah, the Mets are retarded, but we already knew that. The fact that the Sox were the ones who benefited… Sucks, but someone was going to benefit, they just happened to be the team to get it done. Good for them.

  6. 04BOSOX07 says:

    As a Red Sox fan I love it that we end up getting a 1st round pick basically for C. Carter. I am a bit surprised that the Braves would sign Wagner so quickly and give a 1st round pick. I guess they look at it that they will get a 1st round pick for Soriano and Gonzalez. The Mets must be shaking their heads today. Another great move by Omar.
