We have procured this farm system through overspending for players that fall because of high price tags. Our scouting over the past years has not been good, this could be devastating for the Pirates.

A draft ‘luxury tax’ will force the Pirates to operate more like the McClatchy/Littlefield/Creech regime than as the team has since Nutting took control of the franchise.

All that I can say and all that needs to be said is this: Fuck Spoongebud Pinhead and the MLBPA.

So its a ? of whether you prefer 2 of the top 45 or 3-4 of the top 70.

They had high draft picks for 18 years…  other small market teams win…lets just say PLEASE SELL TO SOMEONE…ANYONE…  I hope a baseball man that wants to win…   MLB should take the team…please … I am 68 and will die with our team never winning…

I get that we’d have 3/4 picks sooner, but long term, this is good for this team.

Capping draft bonuses is only part of this. We haven’t heard anything about revenue sharing yet but I expect revenue sharing to decline substantially. Only rich teams and rich players matter to mlb and the players union.

I would seriously go a year without the MLB if it meant a better chance for small market teams to succeed.

I will be shocked if this happens for this year. I guess MLB can say you took the risk knowing the unsettled labor agreement but wow
