A couple of your players have the incorrect draft information associated with them, should they be fixed?

Jemile Weeks, he is listed as being drafted in the 8th round by Milwaukee in 2005, which is true but he did not sign and was then drafted by Oakland in the 1st round (12th overall) in 2008 and he then signed so that should be updated.

Josh Spence, he is listed as being drafted in the 3rd round in 2009 by the Angels, this is also true but he did not sign and was then selected by the Padres in the 9th round in 2010 and he signed with them so that should be updated.

Zach Duke, he is listed as currently being a Houston Astro but he is playing for AAA Syracuse which is the Nationals affiliate so you could update that, maybe you wait until he is called up.

In a related football issue, Sherrick McManis is listed as being selected by Miami as the 13th pick in the 5th round in 2010. The problem is that he was selected by Houston with that pick and has no affiliation with Miami so that should be updated.

Thanks!

OK, well they are all still incorrect and can't be that hard to fix.

Also Sam Dyson just got called up by the Blue Jays and is listed as being drafted in the 10th round by Oakland. While this is true, he never signed and was then drafted by Toronto in the 4th round in 2010 and he then signed so that needs to be corrected also. Thanks!

Josh Edgin of the New York Mets is listed as being drafted in the 50th round by the Braves in 2009. While this is true, he never signed with the Braves and was then selected in the 30th round by the Mets in 2010 where he did sign, so he should be updated as well. Thanks.

Just today you added Matt Harvey of the Mets to the game. It says he was drafted in the 3rd round by the Angels which is true but he didn't sign with them and went to college. He was then drafted in the 1st round, 7th overall by the Mets in 2010 and he then signed. This should be corrected as well as the previous ones, maybe some fact checking before adding draft information in the future!
