What owner in baseball wouldn't sign up for this to get a WS championship...

A handful of owners probably value that $5M fine more than a World Series lol

Yep.

So Luhnow and Hinch get "vacations" and will still be guiding things from afar. Not much of a consequence.

Also with the lost draft picks, doesn't that mean Houston will just have more money to overslot 3rd round plus picks?

Coulda been worse. I'll take it. 

I thought they deserved more, but it's also pretty harsh. I'll take it too.

Not severe enough

Seems like it when you consider Fmr. Braves GM John Coppolella was 86'd forever for circumventing rules.

They def lose the slot value of those picks.

And everyone else gets a little more slot money, presumably. Otherwise if it just disappeared, the Union would go berserk.

Yeah but if they get caught "guiding things from afar" you have to imagine the consequence would be a lifetime ban.
