Maybe I was right in my thinking of why it took so long for Duplantis to sign.


What a broken system. I haven't given it much thought, but they should make slot values guaranteed and force the HS players into a take it or leave it scenario. That will also ensure that the best college players get drafted in an appropriate order, instead of run-of-the-mill seniors getting taken so early. And it will obviously prevent guys like Duplantis getting 4x what Mangum got.


yes but this ain't it, chief.

Every single team has approximately what, 125 million in revenue before a pitch is thrown? Go back to an uncapped draft. There's no excuse for any team to not sign these guys to deals.


The uncapped draft was starting to favor big money teams. It's the main reason why the Redsox came up with so much young tallent as they were one of the first to take advantage of the uncapped system. The Yankees too, though they were more subtle about it, but they bought a lot of high-schoolers in the old system. If you remember that several teams went gonzo in the international system, dropping 20-30 million and taking the penalty, that tells you all you need to know about what was to come with the draft if they didn't cap it.

Not saying the new system is perfect but I don't want an uncapped draft system.

One small change they could do to make the Day 2 signings a bit less of a joke, is to put a floor on pool savings for each pick, say 25% of slot — so if you have an 8th round pick with a $200K slot, any money saved below $50K doesn't return to your pool.

Then teams wouldn't be so incentivized to screw college seniors just to game their draft pools.

I'd support that approach. Teams could still underslot, but there would be some incentive to draft good players on day 2, not a bunch of money savers.

If you want to catch the ear of MLB come up with a plan that makes the draft cheaper and puts more money in the pockets of major leaguers......
