Changing Winds: The Cardinals Did NOT Receive a Competitive Balance Pick Today

Chicago Cubs News, MLB News and Rumors

mlb logo featureAs discussed yesterday, the Competitive Balance Lottery was held today, and the results do not include the St. Louis Cardinals getting an extra free draft pick next year:


Competitive Balance Round A
1. Reds
2. A’s
3. Rockies
4. D-backs
5. Marlins
6. Pirates

Competitive Balance Round B
1. Padres
2. Indians
3. Twins
4. Brewers
5. Orioles
6. Rays

But, as you can see, the Reds get the highest pick, and the Pirates also get a Comp A pick. Bully for them, and, bummer for the Cubs.

If you missed yesterday’s full download on what this is all about, why it matters, and why the Cubs can never get a pick, catch yourself up.
