It took me two years to figure it out, but I think the purpose of the reserve draft, at least in the PCL, is this:

Which reserve picks will either:
a) help me fill in the holes on my team, or
b) be the most valuable to a team playing for next year

The promise or potential of a 20 yr old AA pitcher picked in round 8 of the reserve draft for $2 is likely worth much more than just picking a guy you might need there.

I've got 4 or 5 reserve picks I hope to use this season. The rest are just currency.

Every time I leave a draft like this, I have the same question in my head:

What is the purpose of the reserve draft?

Should you be getting minor leaguers that match your major leaguers?

Or just minor leaguers?

Is it just a question of "Which player is most likely to earn me money this year?" or maybe "which player is most likely to earn me money this year and next year?"
