    Mets are asking for a ruling to get to keep their 11th overall pick if they sign Bourne.

    Do you think this stuff would clear up if MLB said, “Yes, you surrender your first round pick when signing a ‘qualifying offer’ guy, but you still get to keep the 1st round money pool and spend in other rounds as you see fit.” ?

      I’m assuming that’s because it would have been 10th overall and protected if not for the Pirates’ Appel replacement pick?

    it might be a different time and climate but politicians haven’t changed if by some miracle the renovation made the mayor look good he’d be all over it but that aside I only see 2 options 1) help the cubs and 2) get out if the way and let them run their buisness the way they see fit, I’m pretty sure that other “businesses ” get tax breaks and incentives to either locate there of expand so really how much is different just sayin.
