I could be wrong, but that is how it seems to me. All it did was drive up what you were pying draftees. Which is fine, it is a small amount compared to the ml roster.

Of course I still want a salary floor and ceiling, that is the one thing to balance it all.
Why do you think the big markets would have continued to be incredibly stupid, forever?

The slotting system IS a big win for the smaller markets, because the temporary market inefficiency we exploited was starting to close up on us even as recently as last year.
