    Also the lux tax stays where it is and lux tax salaries arenít prorated. With 3 extra roster spots thatís a little more that the Cubs will be over the tax.

    Yeah. Lots of time to figure it out, but the draft will be a mess with no HS or college baseball seasons. Minor leagues too. Could be a lot of lost development time for prospects.

    Not only that, but how does it affect the trade deadline, service time, the lux tax? Do players get paid? If not, will this put the Cubs under the tax? Does the tax change? Will they have a long...
