One thing is that I never liked that we had so many guys in the front office, I wish the FO was a bit smaller and more streamlined. I'm not saying any of this had to do with one another, just something I had been thinking of. 

This is a bad take tbh. Work needs to get done.

Sleep less tbh 

I'm a firm believer that every organization should be as small as it can possibly be without becoming completely dysfunctional... maybe a little smaller than that.

Wow.  I'm anxious to see just what exactly they did to warrant such a penalty.  Have to imagine that the bigger money signings will wait until next period, when everyone has more money to spend again.  I'm sure they'll get to keep their signing bonuses from the Braves, like the Boston prospects got to do.

I'd agree.  You're not going to penalize the players for the teams breaking the rules.  Could make it even more wild if they set some of the bigger IFA free.  They'd be freed up to take a deal from a team that they believe will develop them best as opposed to whose offering the most money.

It's interesting that now kids basically are incentivized to take under the table stuff, since it gets you two bites at the signing bonus apple. Not that the MLB can approach this any other way, but still.

Yeah, the only downside to the very early handshake deal is that the MLB team can void the contract at the last second, leaving the LA kid to scramble to find the suitor with the most money left to offer or to wait until the next signing period.  But overall it does seem to benefit the LA kids, which is fine by me.

That would be fun, but the owners would never let that happen.  Too much of a precedent to set.

I was referring to the Braves prospects...

So was I, but I mistakenly read your post to mean that they would be set free from all IFA signing restrictions.  Reading it again, I don't think you meant that.  Making them true free agents would be the precedent that the owners would never allow.

No, of course not.  My question is would they be subjected to the 2018 IFA rules or the 2017 IFA rules.

I'm really glad this happened. We needed to turn things around in many different areas, and starting with him at the top is where we need to  begin.

I hope we don't lose every prospect, but I know we will. Matian is good as gone. Thank you coppy for screwing us over.
