  1. I think it would be a nightmare to set up, though. There are bascially 3 options: 1. Keep the money the same as now and have equal high school and college draft pools (moneywise) - High school kids are not getting as much money and might go to college instead of signing. 2. You have a smaller college player draft pool and a larger high school one - People will complain that MLB is screwing over kids who "did the right thing" and went to college. 3. MLB increases the draft allowance and keeps the pools even - I still think the high school players will be more apt to go to college, because they still have more leverage and will feel like they are getting screwed. Plus, MLB isn't going to approve spending more money than they have to. If you want to keep the draft (and a cap on draft signing salary) and have the teams draft for talent instead of signability, I think the obvious answer is hard slotting for each pick. This means the first pick gets $7 million (or whatever) and the 2nd pick gets $6.8. The NFL and NBA have hard slotting and teams there draft for talent. In the NFL signability was a little bit of a thing before. Middling QB prospects used to go later in the draft because they were harder to sign.
  2. 30 is reasonable, but they are just trying to limit the number of relief pitchers a team has. I know the new rules limit pitching changes, but I'm sure they are worried about teams figuring out ways around it and games taking forever.
  3. I don't like to see people fired, but I really didn't like him as a broadcaster and I'm not particularly hard on them. I am even okay with everyone else on the broadcast. I just found him unlistenable. The timing is weird, but whatever. Hopefully, they can find someone better.
  4. What do you think we'll get for Adell at this point? Are those guys worse than Lagares?
  5. McDonalds switched the Quarter Pounder to fresh beef. It's actually really good.
  6. I think you're looking at this the wrong way. 20-30 years ago Percival was a stud with a rocket fastball that hit 95. Now everyone has 6 arms out of the pen that sit at 95. The alternatives out of the pen are better.
  7. I eat there way too often because I love their hot sauce. I keep extra packets and put it on stuff at home.
  8. Not only was it an extension, it was signed with two years left on the current deal. There was no need to extend him that early!
  9. I am a little sad I didn't get to see him play one last time.
  10. It will be weird watching without him on the team. I've gotten used to it.
  11. I'm very happy with the Chargers' pick! I hated the Herbert pick, so what do I know?
  12. I am no fan of the Broncos, but I think this is a good move for them. It brings in some competition for Lock, and it doesn't cost so much that they can't take a QB if their guy falls to them. This keeps them from having to trade up to get a top flight QB if they don't want to.
  13. Better than Trout, I would say he is more talented than Trout. Trout is more valuable, but Ohtani can do more things than Trout. A team of 25 Ohtanis would beat a team of 25 Trouts and I don't think it would be close. If I were trying to win a WS though, I would take Trout.
  14. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/mlb/2018/08/23/mike-trout-emotional-message-brother-law-social-media/1077279002/ Trout went on the DL on August 1st and his brother-in-law died August 15th. I am unsure when he would have returned had that not happened, but he returned to play on 8/24. So the most it cost him was a week. His foot injury was extended for a long time, in 2019 because the season was out of hand.
  15. Trout was on the DL with an injury in 2017, 2018, 2019. I'm not counting 2020 for anything.
