    Glad they're doing the draft. Very curious to see how tough agents get with negotiations there because I can't see many taking under slot deals if they're only getting 10% of the cash up front.

    So with a very shortened draft, does that mean the other draft eligible players are technically free agents?

    Also, I could see teams going very hard line with negotiations because if the player doesn't sign they get the same pick in the 21 class (which will be absurdly deep now) and their owner won't have to pay anything.

    This is a good question. If you're a HS kid and just want to sign but don't get drafted, are you a FA? Same with a college JR?

    Pre-prime Thome and Manny hitting 6th and 7th. Albert murdering people in the middle. Lofton at the top.

    Thome was in his prime, but otherwise yeah what a murderers row. Julio Franco had a 124 wRC+ that year as well, geez.

    1996 was a good year.

    Fair. I don't think we realized Thome was on that level yet in 1995-96. Also, I didn't realize his numbers were that good back then. He was hitting .310+ with a nearly 20% BB rate.

    he was a monster that season, 1995 was his coming out but the HRs showed up in 1996. He has that season now and he finishes top 5 MVP not 15th.

    One thing this shows to me is how the PA still doesn't understand how its decisions in the amateur market over the last decade has influenced their current predicament in the CBA they signed, which is bad for them moving forward because they'll continue to get smacked around in those talks regardless of how long the labor stoppage lasts before they sign the next agreement. They'll just keep robbing those players for short term gain (probably in the form of an international draft), and the continue to wonder why prospects and draft picks are more valuable than they think they should be.

    This from Baseball America. They really just threw every draft prospect under the bus.

    Potentially even more important, teams will be limited to spending no more than $20,000 to sign any undrafted player. Previously teams could spend up to $125,000 on any late-round pick and undrafted players without reaching into their bonus pool. Such a provision ensures cost-containment for owners at the expense of limiting opportunities for prospective pro players. Of the 960 players who signed last year, 680 signed for more than $20,000.

    And for the next two years, teams will have no flexibility when it comes to spending on undrafted free agents. In past years, teams could use money left over from their bonus pool allotment to exceed the $125,000 limit for a player who went undrafted. Most famously, the Reds spent $700,000 to sign TJ Friedl, who was undrafted and then impressed scouts while playing for Team USA. The Reds could do so because they had leftover money they were allowed to spend as part of their total bonus pool. For the next two years, the draft spending will be “use it or lose it.” It can only be spent on players who are drafted. Anyone undrafted will be limited to a maximum $20,000 bonus.

    If teams can't push their way to at least a 10-round draft under these conditions, we might as well shut it down.

    Of course, not sure how many kids will even sign under these conditions when they have another year of eligibility to leverage.

    Boras has already been quoted on this and puts all the blame on the owners, but he's apparently been one of Clark's biggest allies among agents the last year or two. At some point, there's going to be an agent coup that Clark won't be able to stop, and the stuff they've done to amateurs over the last decade is probably going to be the biggest reason.

    Not that we needed it, but confirmation Clark got the service time agreement then rolled over on everything else.
