    everyone and their mother knows the first three picks. Why does it take 20 minutes for them to happen?

    Draft would be much more exciting if draft picks could be traded. Could you imagine how elevated the buzz would be?

    I wish they'd allow picks to be traded. It works really well in the NFL and the NBA.

    Smaller market clubs would have more power that way.

    The difference is, the MLB draft takes place during the season. It would make the draft more exciting to think that current players could change teams as a result of draft day trades. Almost be like a second trade deadline.

    Also, could someone tell me the difference between Chris Valaika in 2006 and Christian Colon today, because I can't see it.

    They will, but Baseball has always moved more like a glacier than a race car towards change.
