It’s speculation over news, but Jim Callis at BA wrote about the signs the draft slotting system may fall apart. This would be huge if it happened — especially since the M’s would likely be one of the last teams to abandon it in a year that appears to be talent-heavy. Their continued loyalty to the Selig line could be particularly costly.
