Re: Proposal: Dynamic Draft Order
Sorry, gonna play devils advocate here:
I don't think teams really tank for draft picks at all...not in baseball. Maybe in Basketball and Football it gets talked about, but not baseball.
Fire sales don't occur to get top picks either. They are done to save money and recoup prospects for their unneeded talent (because they aren't winning) that is likely a free agent after the year.
Fans of teams who are awful, especially in baseball really aren't tracking for the number 1 pick in this sport because most have lost interest in what is a very long season, especially if you have a crappy team.
Next, no way baseball would change this system that seems to work out fine. Also, I don't think teams lack motivation to win at the end. Sometimes the worst teams do OK in September because it's a bunch of rookies with no scouting report and playing for a spot on next year's team.
