    Correct. And very possibly an entirely different team salary structure to work with. And, hopefully one that will allow teams to spend more without penalties. Of course we do not know that.

    I get what you are saying. However if the owners used to share a higher percent of the revenues then they do now, and at that higher percent they made a nice profit and the game grew why would the...

    This is what I would rather see. Then trade Q for some money. The pitcher the cubs get for Contreras filling that spot. Let the 5th spot be won by someone here already. Should be enough money to get...

    I think the cubs will absolutely keep him down as long as needed for service time reasons. They wonít say it, that is very possible. Now if he agrees to a long term deal before then, he will be up....

    Same is true the other way, with the owners. And, IMO, not all owners have the same motivation. Where I feel all players do want the same thing.

    You might be right. But that is still just your opinion. I, OTOH, think some owners would love a different deal. I think there are those who would be fine making changes. And to me that is why I feel...

    That would be fine. No cap or no luxury tax penalty would be a great idea. I think you know if they lowered the cap that would not kick salaries up. How is that even possible.

    As for the players...

    Donít even know where to begin. You just see things so pro owners it is at times hard to chat with you. Why would the players agree to a lower cap. What difference does it make if controlled years...

    See, that is what I am not sure of. So does the new CBA run until January of 21, or through the entire year? Just like when it says a guy can be a free agent in 2021, does that mean before or after...

    Obviously I cannot guarantee it, but I would bet you it will go up after the CBA. And the teams that are on the high end of this budget (self imposed) limit, will do the same the next deal.

    Yep, the whole idea of dealing him kind of sucks. For me, I would move Contreras only. Get a controlled pitcher you can plug into the rotation and maybe a top 50 prospect. Put Caratini behind the...

    Just so there is full transparency, all 3 of those articles came from one report by Kaplan. Those were 3 stories based on the same report. And I believe the Cubs said it was not true.
