I forgot about the new compensation rules. I was hoping we could do with Loney what we did with Billy Wagner in 2010. Wagner signing with Atlanta got us 2 extra picks in the 2010 MLB Draft - the 20th overall pick ( 2B Kolbrin Vitek ) and the 39th overall pick ( Pitcher Anthony Ranaudo ). Not a bad return for a guy that we got from the Mets for 2 spare parts ( Chris Carter and Eddie Lora ) and that only pitched 13.2 innings with the Red Sox.
