You've got about half of that wrong. Super 2 definitely is not something to protect prospects. And most of your timelines wrong.
See the above posts for correct answers.
I ended up looking it up. Davis Price may not qualify as a Super 2 as he needs 172 days served to earn a full year of service. Other than that all I got wrong was the fact that players don't have to sign for 6 years out of the draft. Most end up doing so though. Or they at least sign with up to 6 years after club options.
Super Twos wasn't implemented to protect prospects it was implemented to insure young players get paid what they are worth. If you are a super two you are slightly beyond a prospect at that point in your career.
Even if Price had 172 days this season, he still wouldnt be a SuperTwo. Super Twos are players with 2 FULL season Plus more days in the third then 83% of other players with two full years. So a guy like Hanson or Wieters, if they qualified as a super two, would be able to go to arbitration after the 2011 season (Three years) or the 2012 season (Four years). Reading the early post would have explained that well, rather then you giving wrong information.
