Letting teams trade picks is MLB Draft’s path out of obscurity

I’m not buying his argument interest in the draft increasing because of pick trading.

The benefits of interest — perhaps being able to sell the draft to ESPN or DAZN because interest would rise — would make the risk of loopholes worth facing. Perhaps MLB and the union could partner on a sale of the TV rights with the union, say, being able to direct the money toward better pensions as a reason to accept hard slots in the draft.
