re: MLB Offseason Thread: Stanton and Altuve win MVP - ProjectP2294
[quote]Teams that lose out Otani will go after these players[/quote] Yes. But it also makes it a possibility that the same team could sign both Ohtani and Maitan. May still be unlikely, but definitely possible. The market for the Braves free agents is larger than the market for Ohtani, pro...

re: MLB Offseason Thread: Stanton and Altuve win MVP - ProjectP2294
So teams can either use this years or next years bonus pools, but not both at the same time. So the clubs that were capped at $300k per player for this signing period aren't out of the running. The Cardinals will have a chance. They have $4MM for next years bonus pool. They have connections to...

re: MLB Offseason Thread: Stanton and Altuve win MVP - ProjectP2294
Didn't the Yankees just pick up some more ISB slot money in a trade? The Cardinals still have like $3MM in bonus money but I don't think they're going to come close to spending it all. They'll probably trade pool money for prospects soon to teams looking to get in the sweepstakes for either of the...

between Maitan and Ohtani, it sucks for the teams that are capped at $300K per player for this international signing period. I know the Cardinals are capped. I think there are a lot of other ones as well....
