This move proved hysterical in hindsight. They were 11 games over .500 and had a staff ERA of 3.78 at the time. Afterward, they went 9-24 and had an ERA of 5.18.

AJ Preller strikes me as a guy thats very impulsive. The team was slipping a little and he got frustrated and found someone to take it out on. In the end he just made things a lot worse.

It's the final day of the season and the Yankees and Red Sox are tied for the #1 WC. The Mariners and Jays are 1 game back of both. We could have a 4 way tie after today for the AL WC. 

In a 4 way scenario, the Red Sox and Jays would be at home tomorrow by virtue of head to head tiebreaks. The Yankees own the tiebreak over Seattle so the Yanks would pick whether they want to travel to Boston or Toronto. The Mariners would travel to the other. 

The winners on Monday would play in the AL WC game. You'd go back to the head to head tiebreak to determine homefield on Tuesday. So Seattle is eliminated from hosting the WC game and Yankees would only host if Seattle wins.

I think it’s time to get rid of not signing your first round draft pick you get an extra one the next year.  Either pay that player or choose one you know you can sign. 

Yeah that seems stupid to me.

You reward teams for making stupid choices.

I also think that it is stupid that guys can re-enter the draft but that is just me.

The whole MLB draft system is completely broken. Seniors get screwed every year, kids are left out in the cold if they can't reach an agreement, etc. It's an ugly process really. There's no reason someone like Kumar Rocker shouldn't be granted free agency for the the Mets failure to agree. Even if you want to limit it to like the worst 15 teams only its still better than what happens now.

Also players kinda determining what they sign for causing them to get drafted out of place.
