    DeRosa was close to be a Class A Free Agent as well. It’s not for sure until Elias posts their (strange) rankings, but that’d mean the Cubs would have to give up their second round pick to the Cardinals. So that’s an added cost to figure in, but one I’m sure Lilly isn’t worried about.

    Looking at the draft order – http://www.baseballamerica.com/today/prospects/ask-ba/2009/268957.html – the canceled game and the loss on the last day of the season means the Cubs 1st round pick made it into the top half by a half game. Had the won one more game, the Cubs would be losing a 1st round pick when they inevitable sign a Class A guy. Good loss!
