Should Baseball Have The Franchise Tag Or Max Contracts?

But getting the union to agree to any type of cap would be very, very difficult.

It would be very difficult to get the union to agree to something like a $140M cap, full stop.

I think it would be relatively easy to get them to agree to a cap that was paired with a guaranteed minimum of 47% of revenues going to payroll and free agency after three years.  For example.  You just have to give as much or more than you take.

Although it's not a hard cap, there is essentially a hard cap that no team is going to cross. I believe it's $248M where you incur the max penalty.

Was Duquette even involved in the Chris David contract talks? I think that was the owner negotiating directly with Boras.  

It was. Duquette told Boras that the Orioles were out. Boras got Peter back in. Peter was an extremely poor owner. But Baltimore is no jewel.

What is Peter's current status as owner, has he officially transitioned out? Lol for some reason my mind seems to have blocked out most of the last year

That's kind of like the hard floor they have in place at about $14M.  I think when people envision floors and caps they mean something like $80M and $150M.  In other words, things that appear to be exceptionally unlikely.

Peter is not well enough to have any role.

That would cost players a ton of money. There's no reason to let the owners make even more.

The sons seem to be doing things the proper way and wasting energy complaining about Peter Angelos accomplishes nothing.

Saying they had the money for the  ‘right moves’ and not signing Machado borders on idiotic. Unless....Duquette was spewing the company line.

Hard to believe the Davis contract had no impact.

I don’t believe it.

I wasn’t talking about negotiations w Davis. I was answering the comment by Duquette that there’d be enough money available for what they deemed necessary. I believe the Davis signing did impact whether they extended Machado.

Ah ok. I’m operating on 3 hours sleep today. Any chance of Manny staying went to zero after David resigned. Even if ownership won’t admit it.

    • Bleier trade continues to bite the O's last night.  Fry  could not find the plate especially against right-handed batters. Needing to face three batter in not Fry's game.    It didn't affect the outcome because the O's didin't  hit.  However, Fry does not look up to being the 2nd lefties in the pen  which shows how much the O's miss Bleier.  Fry would be a candidate to be sent down but there is no lefty to replace him so he will probably stay in the majors.

    • I missed another game. My sleep schedule sleep patterns are SOOOOOOOO screwed up... I laid down for a quick nap before the game about 4:30. When I woke up at MIDNIGHT I had missed the entire thing. Turned on the TV to watch the 11:30 replay and THANK GOD the Gnats are back playing! They're the replay tonight... fml     So.... I'm not going to read the thread or the board. Or Roch. It's 1:30 am. I'm having my "morning" glass of coffee (yes BIG TALL GLASS) and I'm going to watch the 9 am MASN replay "live". So I have THAT going for me. 🙃 GO O'S!!!!
    • And now for something completely different...   NSFW https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpx_VXRG_qc  
    • Now that does make sense: greater risk, greater reward. So do healthy pitchers make more than healthy batters? Serious question.
    • On his pro-rated salary, Cobb would earn @ $4.5MM the rest of this season. That would be nothing for a contending team to take on if they were sold on him putting them over the top. But I can't imagine being so desperate on August 4, 10 games into a 60 game season if I were a decision maker to take on the entirety of his contract.  If a team really wants to gamble a little bit of cash on Cobb to win this year's WS, they may be wrangled into taking half the burden on the 2021 salary, while the Orioles pay half of this season's $4.5MM remaining. This is starting to sound too good to be true!
