Hot Stove League

As I figured, the Yankees are going after Suppan. He served us well and got a ring. I'd like him to succeed in NY, but I don't think he'll do well as a guy who pitches to contact behind a horrible defense, poor pitching coach and intemperent media. Just my opinion, though.

Seems like the Yankees are going to try and unload Gary "Flax" Sheffield. I'm trying to figure out who'd be stupid enough to take on a broken down OF with poor defense who's owed $13 million.

Soriano and Aramis Ramirez have already filed for FA. No surprises there.

Who do you want **your** team to go after this offseason??

Suppan will definitely go to NY. His wife's family is from PA.

I want the Mets to get Zito. Soriano is a nice fantasy, but Zito is the guy the Mets have to get. With Rick Peterson, the NY limelight and the cash, he should be a Met.

I've been debating wether to do a hot stove league thread. There are plenty of baseball types on the board and it will be a great place to condense all the issues of the game as we go forward.

First thing: New labor agreement. This didn't get much play as it hapened during the series and I haven't had a chance to read up on it.

There is talk of eliminating the draft pick compensation for teams signing top tier FA's.

IMO, that total horseshit. It's still a league that greatly benefits the larger markets. If they want to snag the Johan Santana's of the world, they have to pay up in some way. (IMO)

I got a touch ahead of myself. Top tier FA's will still recieve compensation. It will probably be reduced to a late round sandwich pick.

http://www.mercurynews.com/mld/mercu...l/15827068.htm

======================================================

The new agreement will not have any major changes. Draft-choice compensation for lost free agents will be reduced but not completely eliminated. Teams losing a top-tier free agent will continue to receive compensation.

JMO..But,baseball is being ruined by not having a salary cap and a commissioner(a real commissioner)

Every other major sport has one..it would put everybody on an almost even playing field..

The problem is baseball is being run by the owners/Selig..which makes the league an absolute joke..

I agree; it is getting a little better though. Tigers, Twins, A's, and Padres are all teams with acheivable payroll's that had a legit chance this year.

William,

I know that you already addressed this to a smaller extent, but from what I've read, this is how it breaks down, IIRC

Tier A free agents will still receive compensation (Top 30 %)
Tier B free agents will be reduced to sandwich picks.
Tier C free agents now have no compensation

Per ESPN:

Rankings are used to decide whether players are Type A or B free agents, and what draft picks their former teams get as compensation if they sign elsewhere. The top 30 percent in each group get an A ranking, and the next 20 percent a B ranking.

Compensation from Type C players -- the group between 50 and 60 percent -- was eliminated in baseball's new labor contract. Clubs that sign Type B players won't give up any draft picks, but their former clubs will receive "sandwich" picks between rounds

You're right. Suppan is a great story and a good guy but he's doomed if he goes to the Bronx Zoo.
The fans and media won't give him much room for error being a fourth starter type being paid #2 money.

Considering he's still on the good side of 30, Aramis is my choice as the most attractive FA out there.

In a dream world, I'd like the Mets to get Matsuzaka or trade for Dontrelle Willis.

I don't mind Zito, but there are other guys I prefer more.

A large contract is still back of the rotation for them. The Yanks score a bunch of runs and have good enough (not great) infield D. He doesn't seem to be that much of an emotional pitcher so there are worse fits there.
