You have to be on a 40 man roster to join the Union. I'm not sure if you stay in the Union if you get removed from the 40 man roster.
No way the MLBPA is going to put all the minor leaguers in their Union.
I wanted Kim Ng too. You know she would have been amazing and nobody would work harder. Elias still riding on the coattails of a franchise with a culture of cheating.
I am often critical of Elias simply because people like all or nothing. Dude isn’t the worst but many huge alarm bells. And this? Honestly this looks borderline nuts.
If this is what you wanted, just resign Harvey and save $5 mil+ AND get a better pitcher. Let that sink in as you twist like a pretzel defending this move.
Odds are fair that service time rules are going to change and change in favor of players.
It isn't exactly difficult to find reasons to send starting pitchers down during the season if you decide you need to.
"Tampa model" right? Tampa has a history of signing pre-arbitration players to extensions.
