Okay, settle a dispute for me: I know trades occur after the July 31 trading deadline. I know that a player must "clear" waivers to be traded. I know that teams have a right to pick you, and the teams with the worst record gets first shot, on up the ladder. But the bone of contention I have with some folks and even some sportscasters is some say you start with the worst team in your OWN league, while others say the opposite league's worst teams get first shot. One has said that regardless of league, it's worst to best record. For example: Regarding Adam Dunn, I heard a sportscaster say that obviously, Adam Dunn was snapped up early by the D-Backs since they got an early shot being a division contender but had a poor record, and there was no way they were going to let the AL get a shot at a born, bred DH like Dunner. Then I heard another talking head say that Adam Dunn was obviously devalued since the AL, a DH league, had first shot at him and passed on him. Sorry. Both can't be right. Which is it? And I'd like a link of some sort to back it up, because I'm hearing and seeing more theories than sand on the seashore.
