Everyone agrees the MLB draft has major problems. Every other draft is higly broadcast while MLB's isn't. Now Strasburg got very many people intersted...for the first pick, after that everyone i know who watched it turned it off(except me..i waited till the Cards wrongfully drafted Shelby Miller over Missouri State top pitcher Kyle Gibson.).
Anyway the point is MLB has some five things that could make the draft better they are as follows:
*If you like this check out my other articles at: *
Trade draft spots. Every other sport does it! The only thing wrong is the Yankees would buy out #1 every time.......
Shorten the draft. Make it so there are 11 rounds. You two "Starting Pitchers", two "Relief Pitchers", and one player of every other position.
The team with the most amount of money(Yankees) does not draft any lower then #10.
Make the World Series Winner from the year before not be able to draft.
Make the draft have a "lottery". Not like any other lottery I mean you take the 9 worst teams*(see #3) make the GM's get chased by a bear, the longer you stay alive the lower the pick you get.
Then for picks 10-19 you get a flaming jump rope and the President's this time have to jump it the longer you stay the lower a pick you get.
#20-29 has to be the best though the get chased by bears, while having to jump on a flaming jump rope (individual), and they have to keep the flame going (and staying alive from the bear) while (hear is the kicker) swimming! Again longer to survive gets the lower pick!
(I am putting a pic of Boris because he is a devil..and I couldnt find anything better that goes with the slide then a devil! Also if you can't remember why there are only 29 picks may i direct you to number four.)
