obviously college baseball has issues; thats the point of the thread though; the talent isnt there because they are all in the minor leagues; get rid of aluminum bats if you combine them and the talent obviously goes up when everyone is being fed into one pool. Maybe make a rule that you have to stick in the Minors say two years before you can move up;
i would almost think it would increase if all those players are all trying to get onto either one MLB AAA team or a college team rather than a couple hundred minor league teams.
i can see the development idea being important but i'm wondering in the last several years how many rookies have made their debut past 25 or so? 4 yrs of college ball would put you at 22 23, drafted into one MLB AAA team spend a year there and your 24, i don't see how eliminating Minor leagues all of a sudden makes everyone that much younger breaking into the big league.
It works for the other two big sports, my question is why is MLB so different? how old is Felix, Upton's, Longoria, Hughes, Soto, Braun, Weiters, Reimold, Lincecum, etc. They are all breaking into the bigs in their early to mid 20's.
