    Tanking for picks is about the only weapon small market teams have. If it is taken away via a payroll floor it has to be replaced or offset with something else.

    Implementing a salary floor will require significant changes to the economics of MLB. Will there be a salary cap? Will owners agree to a revenue sharing model similar to The NFL or NBA? Additionally, what happens to the length of player control by clubs? The arbitration process? The funding of minor league baseball?

    Maybe can start a separate thread to discuss further.

    There was something on Facebook that said the Mets are about to make a BIG trade. Would that be for Bryant? Would the Cubs really trade their perennial MVP candidate?

    It is my understanding that the Owners want arbitration on the table for discussion when the sides meet.

    Or they could hire really smart front office people like the Rays and A’s.

    The Cubs have a plan for partial capacity, but it appears to be precarious.
