MLB has proposed a lot of new things to the Union and they countered with some. They are currently negotiating. The proposed...

DH in the NL Hate it

3 batter minimum for all pitchers Hate it

Trade deadline before the All Star break and the elimination of any trades after it. Love it

20 second pitch clock Whatever

Roster expansion to 26 and a cap on pitchers that would be 12. OK with roster expansion, capping by position is dumb

Lower the mound I guess we just want more pitcher injuries?

Draft penalties for losing teams, advantages for winning ones. Leagues idea to stop tanking What would stop tanking: 100% broadcast revenue sharing

Allow two sport players, like Murray, to sign MLB deals. Whatever

 

MLB is the pace of play rules, cap on pitchers. The players want the DH and trade deadline altered

Miami got Alfaro, Sanchez and Will Stewart. International money also goes to Miami.

Really good trade for Miami. I'll have to stop making fun of them for at least a week.

Could be a great deal depending on what they can do with the int'l money.

Realmuto is a good player, but that's a lot of talent to give up for 2 years. I'm glad the Braves didn't try to top it.

So what would have been our offer had it been topped based on the Phillies prospect ratings?

No, that's why I'm asking how our guys match up comp wise.

I don't think it amounts to both Anderson and Riley though.

A package of something like Riley and Anderson is what it would have taken for the Braves to land Realmuto. The Marlins wanted a young everyday ready player and an elite pitching prospect and that's exactly what the Phillies gave up. They gave up far and away their #1 pitching prospect and a young MLB ready catcher with high very upside.

Another thing that proponents of the DH in the National League are not looking at is the fact that it COULD make your team worst. You will have the teams that spend money go out and get that big bat for the DH.  Teams who do not spend ( Braves)  are hampered by that.  Everytime the Braves play Boston or New York Yankees they get drubbed.  If Philly, Washington, Los Angeles, Chicago etc. get that DH, the National League will get that much harder...

Something like Riley, Fried, and Wentz, plus something else because we're pretty much out on international bonus pool. 

It's apparently complicated because the Marlins reportedly think more of Stewart than the industry as a whole (and that's not a knock, they may be right). 

BTW, I had heard that the Braves essentially gave the Marlins a choice of any one of their top 10 prospects, plus add-ons. The Phillies didn't want to trade Sanchez, and I don't blame them, he has the highest ceiling of almost any pitcher in the minor leagues right now.

The DH only adds to payroll and doesn't add to revenue. There's a reason NL ownership resisted for so long, but the commissioner's office is more powerful now than it's been since the Landis days.

I honestly feel if baseball felt they could get away with just fielding a 162 game homerun derby instead of real games, they would...:lol:

" next up, Right Fielder, Giancarlo Stanton..."

" we felt that going forward, why play the games?  Just give them what they want, home runs..."
