  1. I actually like the hard cap more than I thought I would but I think teams need a little more wiggle room to work with to buy kids out of college commits. Even just 500K-1mil

    • I was thinking the same thing – maybe every team gets one exemption.

      Then again, it’s great for NCAA baseball. There must be a couple dozen or more HS prospects who might have signed if teams could offer over slot without penalty, now developing in Division I.

      • I think so on the kids going to college. Also I think plenty of kids are just still signing but for less and getting into camp and into the system earlier, which is a huge win for the kid and for mlb teams.

  2. One (and maybe only) good thing about the new draft process… tons of guys signing right away, no more of that Boras bull crap at 11:59pm in the middle of August
