Some agents like it. Go to a team that has no concerns > roll dice. : Why would a player let any team perform a physical pre draft?

Yeah, that's a good one. : Where does raising the salaries for minor leaguers? 3rd act?

Draft exists to save teams $ on bonuses, period. : draft exists because of historical precedent that philosophy doesn't work.

If didn't spend savings, they'd get ripped for that too. : Team promised "saved" money to others shortly thereafter

Hard to make that happen logistically. : wouldn't pre-draft physicals be the easier solution?

Sure, I did. Would have taken Aiken. Admitted in that tweet that was hindsight. : Did you have Aiken rated higher than Rodon?
