    Just DFA Olt. He is a wasted 40 man spot, especially if we add Baez, Bryant, and Russell next season. Three spots we have to open up, plus whoever we add in the offseason.

    Sticky: Using a year when we have last place locked up.

    Using a year when we have last place locked up.
  3. Sticky: But the players are still essentially making the...

    But the players are still essentially making the same amount of money. So what would that accomplish?
  4. Sticky: [QUOTE=KyleJRM;28820013] Okay decades ago they...

    Okay decades ago they did. Maybe we should pay the players the same amount as they did back then too? I thought the sport has evolved past the 50s
  5. Poll: Kinda OT but I'm going to be so pissed if the...

    Kinda OT but I'm going to be so pissed if the Astros get the first pick for the fourth year in a row.
  6. Sticky: Then how would the draft be any different? If...

    Then how would the draft be any different? If there was a pool and teams wouldn't risk it all on just a few players then the players would essentially be getting paid the same as now. The only...
  7. Sticky: Having a system like that in place would allow...

    Having a system like that in place would allow for the top players to get a ton of money and the rest would be screwed. Not so sure that would benefit the majority of players.
  8. Sticky: I'm pretty sure that "being free to negotiate...

    I'm pretty sure that "being free to negotiate their salary on an open market" would be akin to free agency. Correct me if I'm wrong.
  9. Sticky: One reason that makes sense is so the teams with...

    One reason that makes sense is so the teams with the highest payroll doesn't sign the top hs/college players every year. Do you think it would be good for the game if one team signed Appel, Bryant,...
  10. Sticky: And how exactly do you benefit from the players...

    And how exactly do you benefit from the players getting more money? It seems you're the "poor dummy" fighting the "good fight" for those under represented players getting shafted by the terrible...
  11. Sticky: Those colossal media deals haven't been working...

    Those colossal media deals haven't been working out too well so I'm not quite sure those will continue at the rate they have been and we have been seeing cities become more reluctant to pay for new...

    It doesn't have to just be limited to ticket prices. It can be employees, stadium renovations, merchandise, etc. If expenses rise then something else has to go to keep the revenue coming in at a high...
  13. Sticky: Well the main objective in running a business is...

    Well the main objective in running a business is usually to make money. If expenses go up then a good business owner would general adjust to that. They don't just say **** it, making money is...
  14. Sticky: So if all players came into the league as free...

    So if all players came into the league as free agents you think everything would stay the same except for the fact that rookies would just receive more money? If you think that a select few teams...
  15. Sticky: Well if you actually read Kyle's post it is what...

    Well if you actually read Kyle's post it is what he suggested. I didn't say or quote anything pertaining to that article.
  16. Sticky: No sport has ever had instant free agency. It...

    No sport has ever had instant free agency. It would ruin the sport and there would be no competitive balance. Also ticket prices would go through the roof so teams could get more money to pay these...
  17. Sticky: Why should rookies or career minor leaguers be...

    Why should rookies or career minor leaguers be able to make millions of dollars? The system is setup so if a player is good enough to last in the majors for a good amount of time then he gets...
  18. Sticky: So the better players make more money?

    So the better players make more money?

    So terrible, right? I mean who has ever heard of the owner making the most money? It's just ludicrous I tell ya!
  20. Sticky: No one is saying that they are paid too much but...

    No one is saying that they are paid too much but if you're looking for a sport to complain about how players aren't being paid enough and not treated right then go cry about football. Those guys have...

    They will probably write some crap about how they are trying to find Jeter's replacement. Even though all these guys are at least 5 years from the majors if any of them even make it.

    The Yankees cleaned up in the international market, although they missed out on the top spec who went to the Rays. The Yanks signed a ton of SS though.

    Lol at *****ing about baseball players not making enough and crying about their contracts. Baseball players have the strongest union and their contracts are easily the most favorable out of any of...

    I'm not so sure it's easier to acquire high end pitching specs in a trade as opposed to high end hitting specs. I went back and looked at the trades the last few years and the best pitching spec...

    I found it interesting that Law had Conforto on there and called him the most advanced college bat of the draft. I wonder if that is the general consensus of prospect evaluators or if he is the only...
