Worst CBA EVER.

some cliffs of the new changes

DKnobler
Worst part of draft bonus system in new CBA is that teams can lose future picks for spending too much. Hurts low-revenue teams the most.


If a player signs after the 10th round for more than $100,000, the excess money will go against a team's draft pool.

Draft signing deadline moves from Aug. 15 to between July 12 and 18.

Worst teams, for example, will receive ~$5M in int'l $. Best teams will get ~$1.8M. Not sure on exact figures for draft, but similar %.

What MLB wanted more than anything with draft is players to get selected in order of talent. MLB believes this system will force that.

Sources: Cubans under 23 years old and with less than three years in pro ball will be considered "amateurs" and count against int'l bonus $.

Every team will have $2.9M to spend in international bonus money this season. Money is not tradeable this year.

International bonuses undergoing drastic overhaul. Among the biggest: Starting in 2013-14, teams can trade $ from their international pool.


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.

Teams can trade for only 50% more than their international spending cap. So if a team has a $2.5M cap, most it can trade for is $1.25M.

Draft tax is harsh: Teams that go more than 5% over slot get a 75% tax. From 5-10% over, a 75% tax and loss of 1st-round pick the next year.

More draft tax: Go 10-15% over, 100% tax and loss of 1st- and 2nd-round picks. 15% and higher is 100% tax and loss of two first-round picks.

Drafted players may only sign minor-league deals now. #MLB, #cba

If you're a fan of a team that's putting huge investments into scouting/draft/international, that's over. Sorry.

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

Everything about this is just a giant fuging joke. Way to fuging destroy the talent pool in baseball. No multi athlete player is going to choose baseball over college now.

This whole thing basically sh*ts on the smaller market teams and makes it easier for the big market teams to win. Makes it even harder for teams like Tampa to be successful.

Honestly disgusted as a Nationals fan. Looking over this, the only positive change is moving the draft signing deadline up a month. Seriously.
