    Oh I don't disagree that there should be a floor. But just calling for a flat cap is...dumb and won't fix any of the problems. The tax essentially is acting as a cap (at least the NBA's version of a cap). I don't think any revenue sharing needs to change...one of the smallest market teams has dished out the largest contracts (so far) in the last 2 off seasons.

    ...? Why? So the owners can pocket more money? Time to get rid of the luxury tax I think is what you mean.

    We know.

    There are plenty of not-Philly places with nice weather that would be happy to pay Harper and they won't suck and hurt his numbers...so yea...again, not SF.

    Is there a reason people are thinking he's going to sign in SF over Philly? It makes zero sense for him to sign in SF.

    If they're smart they won't extend Bum...he's...not good anymore...although if it's just for $10-12 mil that wouldn't be bad. Didn't realize he was barely making enough to live in downtown SF as it is...

    I think you meant to say he's one of the best pitchers in baseball?

    Young guys seeing that free agency sucks and you want to get your for sure money ASAP. Yep. Strike incoming.

    Again, there's no point in discussing what they SHOULD do as they're clearly not going to do it. Don't be obtuse.

    When one is being intentionally obtuse by cherry picking the part of the facts that supports what they're saying while leaving out the rest that doesn't support it...then yes. Take care.

    But the Union doesn't care about the low level guys. It cares about the vets getting paid the most. That's why the young guys get held down, paid less, yadda yadda.

    If the one player is contributing more he deserves to get paid more...that's...how it works

    It will also set up a system that will allow players to play longer. Ortiz...for example. It's not like hitting a baseball is an easy task...and pitchers shouldn't be doing it. It allows more players to get paid. There are already defense first players on teams, usually on the bench but if they're good enough they play (Billy Hamilton for example).

    Cherry picking your definition is cute... https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/disabled Definition of disabled 1a : impaired or limited by a physical, mental, cognitive, or developmental condition : affected by disability b : incapacitated by illness or injury I believe you'll find that those who are actually disabled (1a) might take offense to those who actually aren't and making millions being SO NOT DISABLED yet calling themselves disabled. Facts are hard.
