Draft King Cubs vs. Cardinal HacksLeave a Comment
The @Cubs have the 27th and 30th overall picks in the @MLBDraft tonight and four of the first 105 selections. The Cubs currently have five first-round draft picks on their 25-man roster. 2011-Javy Baez (drafted by Jim Hendry), 2012-Albert Almora, 2013-Kris Bryant, 2014-Kyle Schwarber and 2015-Ian Happ.
The @Cardinals who gave up their first-round pick to the Cubs for signing free-agent Dexter Fowler also forfeited picks 56 and 75 (along with 2 million cash) to Houston as punishment for an employees’ hacking of the Astros’ database. Not picking until 94th, the Cardinals are the last of the 30 teams to pick. Every rival in the division will have selected at least three before the Cardinals draft one.
