I thought they were moving the draft until AFTER the CWS in part to avoid the players being distracted? Now they are having it in the same city?

I think that's a future move. They're making some changes in the next couple of years, I think, to tighten up some aspects of the old system.

This draft was already scheduled though. They're just moving locations because they want some of the top players to be present.

Oh okay - I guess I missed that the changes would be gradual...thanks!
