Very limited way of thinking...
For example, the slot of pick 4 this year was about 4.5 million. The slot for pick 7 this year was 3.2 million...... Thats an extra 1.2 million the Sox could be throwing at a kid later in the draft who falls, or use to sign the guy they want.
This draft especially is VERY top heavy, so you want to be picking high and have choices. This is a draft that could revamp our entire minor league system.
I would much rather have an extra million and change in draft money than finish 4th.
