If the Nats fail to sign Strasburg, they just need to quit playing altogether. It doesn't matter who his agent is. That's what happens when you get the #1 pick. You're going to have to pony up a ton of money. Give him his money, continue to build through the draft, and hopefully he's the next superstar pitcher in baseball.

the MLB draft would do itself some favors if it allowed the teams to trade their picks

Way too many rounds for that stuff to happen, and way too often guys that are drafted don't even get signed. About the only thing draft pick trading would do for the MLB is generate some fan interest.

it would give the teams leverage when it comes to signing players... like Josh Fields last year and the Braves... he doesn't want to sign then fine they can trade the rights to him to the Yankees for some picks... i mean itd be a work in progress but anytime you convert from a regulated business to a free-market business it has to come with some benefits!
