    Sticky: I think any comp pick should be in a comp round...

    I think any comp pick should be in a comp round regardless of whether it's for losing a free agent or failing to sign a pick. The highest picking team to fail to sign a first rounder would get the...

    Give them at least some choice as to where they'll play.
  3. Sticky: I can't keep all the defecting Cubans apart this...

    I can't keep all the defecting Cubans apart this year. He seems like a guy I want, but I don't remember if he was one of the ones I was supposed to be really excited about defecting.
  4. Sticky: The best team would conceivably have a chance at...

    The best team would conceivably have a chance at signing a top player, but they would have to sacrifice the rest of their draft to do it. The Yankees had a $3.2 million bonus pool this year. That...

    How many teams would really be willing to punt an entire rest of the draft to throw their whole pool at one kid who is still more likely than not to never amount to anything?
  6. Sticky: I'm fully fine with that as a trade-off for the...

    I'm fully fine with that as a trade-off for the kids signing mid-puberty.
  7. Sticky: It wouldn't be negotiating salary. We're talking...

    It wouldn't be negotiating salary. We're talking signing bonuses here.

    If the teams are still capped in overall spending, it would be virtually impossible to sign the top three picks. In the...

    He's been putting up good numbers since the day he became a starter.

    This. For all the talk of baseball being a 9 billion dollar industry, it's not as though Miguel Cabrera is actually bringing in $30 million in revenue annually.

    I was trying to come up with a better way to handle compensation for failing to sign a first round pick. Something that doesn't punish every team picking after by pushing their slot and bonus pool...

    I could live with that. I wouldn't want an entirely free market where the same few teams who dominate free agency ALSO get all the best amateur talent. The IFA system is kind of like an auction draft...

    Sticky: Poll: My phone is being a ***** about opening the link....

    My phone is being a ***** about opening the link. But basically a spending limit based on standing without any specific draft order or slots, so if you want to blow your wad on a few guys, you can,...

    Sticky: Poll: This whole thing with Houston made it pretty...

    This whole thing with Houston made it pretty clear that the new system is garbage. It'll almost certainly be overhauled again in the next CBA.
  15. Yeah, failure to sign a first round pick (as long...

    Yeah, failure to sign a first round pick (as long as you offer at least 40% of slot value) nets the following pick in next year's draft, effectively punishing every team after that pick with a lower...

    He didn't sign. Supposedly he needed serious money to pry him away from college. Over a million.

    Tennessee playing a double header and Soler/Russell get six combined PAs.

    There are conflicting reports of just how much they had left. Using BA's listed numbers, there's a definite disconnect in the narrative, as they should've had plenty left even with Aiken at $6.5 and...

    I'd still prefer teams with high picks to have disincentives to messing around with their picks like this.
  20. You're putting too much stock in the last-minute...

    You're putting too much stock in the last-minute offer. Dropping down to the bare minimum of $3.1 and then bumping it back up to $5 with five minutes left before the deadline is not negotiating in...
  21. It would seem all but certain that this will...

    It would seem all but certain that this will spark major reevaluation of this new draft system in the next CBA, I'd think. Right now it's against the rules to make one player's contract explicitly...

    I can't wait until a few years from now when the Astros manage to bungle their way to securing every protected pick in the draft as compensation for failing to sign their 2014 through 2022 first...
  23. They didn't exactly make it a secret. Once they...

    They didn't exactly make it a secret. Once they had an excuse to offer Aiken less, they set about trying to sign Mac Marshall with the savings. They may have indeed cost themselves two first round...
  24. Jerking around the #1 overall pick just to try...

    Jerking around the #1 overall pick just to try signing a 21st rounder is ridiculous enough. If it ends up costing them two high first round picks (on top of costing them Aiken and Marshall), that...

    You forgot to mention that he looks like a freaking goober.
