This new CBA is awful.

Added a new 1 game wild card. Horrid, random things happen enough in a 5 game series.
The draft is basically hard slotted now. Ruining small market teams chances to go over slot later.
Only can spend 2.5 million on international amateurs... racist.

among plenty others

By my calculations, TWENTY teams went 16% or more over slot this year, which would have triggered 100% tax & loss of two 1st-rders #mlbdraft

MLB will have no chance of getting those multi-sport athletes anymore

It is not just Seligs fault, MLBPA let this happen

apparently you can trade international money

"JeffPassan

For example: Worst team in baseball gets $5M to spend internationally. If team doesn't want to spend it all, it can trade $ to another team."

just glad the Nationals went big these last two drafts(spending wise) before this new CBA. such, ****ing, bull****.

MLB: All international amateur players must register with the scouting bureau to be eligible to sign. Top 100 prospects subject to drug test

So basically, if you find an international guy, he has to register, sharing his name with everyone. Great.

hahahahahaha, wow

I'm reading the cliffs on this **** and it's ****ing hilarious(in a bad way).

No, they just can't keep it in their pockets and they can't do it while being interviewed, I believe.

It's too late to say this. He's done far worse to baseball than this.

1. Trying to implement salary cap leading to strike that nearly killed sport
2. Moving his brewers to the NL for expansion.
3. Realignment
4. Interleague play
5. All star game determining world series host.
6. Moving Astros to AL(yeah they have like 2 down years and they move the team away from all it's big rivals)
---
Honestly the playoffs should be 10 or 12 teams and the season 150 games. I see no reason to not expand the postseason more. That's where the ratings are.

Good thing they are targeting these teams

There have been so many playoffs for the WC it's probably better to get that money anyway.

1 game playoff for WC boggles my mind

after a long ass 162 game season, you say here...your fate lies in this 1 game, good luck

dont like it but i also understand that there would scheduling conflicts if they made it longer

I like this. It just gives extra incentive for a team to actually win their division.

Yes, this is fantastic. Love this! Fukin WC teams were practically rewarded in the divisional round in previous years.

to make it even more fair, they should make the divisional series 7 games.

We don't really know much about the wild card thing yet (for example; it might just be a 1 game play in...which i don't like)...so i am on hold for that


everything else is stupid. Instead of just making a draft salary cap (meaning pick one can only get X, pick 2 gets X-X and so on)....they made it so you can basically can't sign all of your draft picks (which is what mid-small market teams need to do to compete)....

Essentially they made it so the big market clubs are going to be able to win more often and the small/mid market teams are ****ed now even more...

well done Bud...ya ****

changes to the draft will ruin baseball in 5-10 years. all the multi sport players will sign to play other sports for more up front money.

I honestly like the new wild card set up. The rest of it blows though.

Only problem I could see happening with the new wild card though is that it'll just be the Sox, Yankees, and Rays every year anyway.

But Selig ruined baseball when he made the All Star game count for home field advantage.

Honestly it doesn't change much as far as the divisional round. The WC team who wins that 1 game playoff will have just as much momentum as ever heading in to the divisional series now. It almost makes it even more unfair for the division winner who has to play the winner of that 1 game playoff.

The WC has already proven how momentum can factor in to short 5 game series. MLB just made it even worse.

THIS.

I honestly don't give a single **** about the wild card ****. It actually seems pretty interesting. Moving the draft signing deadline up a month is also a fantastic change.

My BIGGEST issue is with the changes to the draft. It especially ****s the Nationals, who have been like the 2nd biggest spenders in the draft in the past two years. It's allowed them to rejuvenate a PATHETIC farm system and turn it into an (arguably) top 5 system. That's gone. The talent pool in baseball is going to be completely **** in 10 years as you said, and it is going to have a seriously (bad) impact on baseball in the long run.
