New CBA

Postby Amazinz » Tue Oct 24, 2006 8:49 pm

Overview of the CBA here.

Luxury Tax:

Thresholds reset to $148 million in 2007, $155 million in 2008, $162 million in 2009, $170 million in 2010 and $178 million in 2011.

Hilarious!

Draft:

Clubs that fail to sign first or second round draft pick will receive the same pick in the subsequent draft as compensation. Club that fails to sign a third round pick will receive a sandwich pick between rounds three and four in the subsequent draft as compensation.


Period of time before a Player must be protected from the Rule 5 Draft is changed from three or four years from first minor league season to four or five years from year of signing.


Type C free agents eliminated in 2006

Also in 2006, compensation for type B players becomes indirect (sandwich pick) as opposed to direct compensation from signing Club.

Effective 2007, Type A players limited to top 20 percent of each position (down from 30 percent) and Type B players become 21 percent - 40 percent at each position (rather than 31 percent - 50 percent).


So early reports were off. Teams will still get compensation for guys like Zito.

Trades:

Eliminate right to demand a trade for all new multi-year contracts.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

The only mention of the drug program is a note at the bottom of the article: "Drug program continues." Not very informative.

I really like that teams will get compensation for FAs. This will help restock teams who can't afford big FAs. ;-D

Has this always been so :-? Even in some variation?

Yeah, in some variation. But I think the new rule help teams with high draft picks since they get replaced the next year. I think in years past you got a replacement pick but it came after the 1st round. Not exactly sure of the details.

Type C was stupid anyways...
I read yesterday that the compensation was not getting dumped, only tweaked, so thats kind of nice. ..

Thanks for the outline. What's surprised me about this CBA is the lack of press and ease in which it's gone through. There's been so much trouble over CBA's in the past, and it finally seems that there's some actual discussion and comprimise here.

I agree. Do they honestly expect more than one team to break that? I know my Sox are in the top 2 with spending, and we'd be paying out Uranus if the tax were near the median payroll level, but there's zero chance IMO that any other team has to pay, even in 2011.

All it does is help teams like the Mets, Red Sox, Dodgers, etc., and continue to penalize the Yankees. This does nothing for the team that can't afford the big payroll (assuming they exist).
