Finally, MLB does not want over-slot deals announced early so they influence other draft deals (mind you it's an absurd sentiment because agents & players know when deals are done but just waiting MLB's OK)

The way to fix the situation is to move the signing deadline up to July 15 from August 15

or for teams that don't have a real shot of say hosting an all star game or otherwise needing to be in the MLB's good graces to tell them to freak off. For a team that doesn't own it's own TV rights to do anything to make selig happy is a joke
