whats the odds?
selig has obviously been aiding the wilpons...maybe he will throw us one
>> 1 in 3. there are 10 teams behind mets, roughly 2/3 of league who would likely squawk. i think the mets position has merit tho.
They could do it. They would have to add a clause to the CBA, with the player's union approval, covering the exact situation. It will happen again so it couldn't be a one time thing. It's flat out unfair that a team should lose a protected pick because another team couldn't sign their 1st round pick last year.
" But let the team that should have received that 10th pick at the #11th position pick next in the #12 spot."
New CBA Braves get a compensation pick either way no matter who signs Bourn or what pick they give up, no longer do they get the pick of the team that signed the FA. So no matter who signs Bourn they get the same pick which makes this a lot more possible since no team is really getting scr*wed over majorly and would argue against it much.
