MLB Trade Rumors has a piece today on JD Martinez - notably how the Astros cut him loose after the 2013 season, and he immediately became a star for the Tigers in 2014.

Bad for Astros ... except.

Astros used the #2 pick in the 2015 draft to acquire Alex Bregman ... 

Chances they'd have had a shot at Bregman had they drafted a few picks later?  Almost none.
