    Reds 2007 Draft position.

    The Reds will either pick 15th or 16th. The Reds 80-82 record tied with the Texas Rangers. Does anyone know how the tie is broken? This could be huge because the top half of the draft would not have to give up a first round pick for a type A free agent.

    My guess is that both teams will qualify for the top tier, meaning neither would forfeit a pick. No way they force one team, but not the other, to sacrifice their top draft choice based on a coin flip.

    Reds get 15th pick because they had a worse record than the Rangers in 2005.

    From MLB.com

    The Reds' 80-82 record this season put the club in the bottom 15 among Major League teams. It means they would not lose their 2007 first-round draft pick as compensation if they signed a Type-A free agent (a top-level free agent) during the offseason. Instead, a second-round pick would be sent to a team as compensation for signing one of its star free agents.

    Cincinnati's 2006 record was identical to the Rangers, but the tiebreaker favored the Reds because Texas had more wins in 2005 (79 to 73).

    The compensation rules are subject to change, however, once the collective bargaining agreement expires in December and a new agreement is reached.

    Thanks for the info. The Reds should still get a pretty good player with the 15th pick.
