find it here. The Cardinals have the 13th overall pick, as known, but also picked up a 1st-round supplemental (#39) because Percival was a Type-B FA. i'm confused; i thought the Cards didn't offer Percival arbitration because of a "gentleman's agreement" last year when he signed a minor-league contract, and thus lost the opportunity to pick up a supp. pick. anybody know how this worked?
the Cards have 3 picks in the top 60. does anybody know of a good scouting report of potential picks this year that we could cross-reference to the draft order to get some idea of who the Cards might pick? also, do the Cards get an extra pick since they couldn't come to an agreement with Russell, or does that rule only apply for the first 3 rounds.
(as a quick aside, the Cards take a lot of heat for not signing all their picks, or for not drafting guys they think they won't be able to sign. this year, LAA, Boston, Philly, Houston, and ATL all have supp. 2nd or 3rd round picks b/c they couldn't sign their pick from last year. all of these clubs have a reputation for drafting pretty well, and none of them are thought of as cheap-skates w/r/t payroll. just thought a little comparison is appropriate.)
