Reading through Jim Callis' latest chat where the issue was raised, I thought it might make an interesting off-season discussion to hear what people thought about baseball's rule which forbids clubs from trading their draft picks.
Good rule -- protecting franchises from their own short-term bad decision-making and from agents who would manipulate the draft -- or bad one -- not allowing clubs the flexibility to trade for what they need?
Do you think it will change to be like the other major sports in the future? And what kind of value do you think there would be for baseball draft slots, given how much more unpredictable MLB draft picks are than those in the NFL/NBA?
How do you think trading draft picks would change the game specifically?
Should Major League Baseball allow franchises to trade draft picks?
