      So it will be next year that Manfred takes our draft picks away, hm?

        presumably. correa's sentencing got moved back again, but by fall the legal system will have run its course so mlb will decide what they're going to do.

          Doubt we lose them. Financial penalty is it.

            I'm assuming the Astros are going to get our first pick at the least. Which blows, b/c with this barely-over-.500 team we'll probably be drafting higher next year. Oh well, let's get someone awesome today.

                I agree.

                I think the powers at MLB want and need the Cardinals to be relevant on a continual basis. Fine them a few mil. and let them keep on keeping on.

                  I agree with the general premise but I don't think it has anything to do with needing the cardinals to be relevant (as if taking away 1 draft pick would cause them to plummet into irrelevancy). I think that they will conclude that the responsibility lies less with the club and more with Correa as an individual, which will limit their punishment to mostly a slap on the wrist for the club.

                    so, uh, i guess that was 7 est, since the phillies just made the number 1 pick.

                      Apparently the broadcast is WAY behind. The first five picks or something are all on Twitter.
