For Those Worried About Losing That Draft Pick

From Diamond Leung's live chat today:

The Press-Enterprise
: Everyone, Logan White is standing behind me and says hi to the readers. I just asked him about losing the 17th pick. He said : For the O-Dog? I'm happy. Look at Russell Martin, 17th rounder. We'll find him. We'll make it up.

Always nice to hear it straight from the man himself.

Won't the Dodgers get that pick back if someone signs Hudson next year?

Found this at MSTI:

"I understand why everybody is concerned about giving Arizona the 17th pick, but arn't we forgeting somthing? LA will get a pick if we offer him arbitration next year and he signs with another team. There is no guarantee we will recoup our draft pick, but it is not a total loss."

"True, but that means we'd have to offer arbitration first, and with the way the market looks, he'd be silly not to accept it."

Compensatory Picks (Wikpedia)

Maybe they're counting on the #1 draft pick they get when Manny signs elsewhere. Oof, I just threw up in my mouth a little.

That's what I was thinking, when you hear of some of these late round gems, and with our reputation for having astute talent evaluators, I'm not worried.

Orlando Hudson is a Class A Free Agent?!?!?! I think it's time they work on the why that is so.

That is true. Let's look at those farm products:

Russell Martin - 17th round
Matt Kemp - 6th round
James Loney - 1st round
Blake DeWitt - 1st round
Delwyn Young - 4th round
Jonathan Broxton - 2nd round
Chad Billingsley - 1st round
Clayton Kershaw - 1st round
Eric Stults - 15th round
Cory Wade - 10th round
James McDonald - 11th round
Scott Elbert - 1st Round
Andy LaRoche - 39th round
Jason Repko - 1st round supplemental

And if you want to include Ethier, he was a 2nd round pick by Oakland in 2003. In any event, 8 of the 13 Logan White picks listed were picked after the first round, 5 of the 13 after the 9th round.
