Just wondering since people have mentioned small market teams selling out, but nobody has asked what our own owners did.  Hard to imagine they would go along with these insane draft restrictions after the way they've been building the team.

One article I read referred to the Nats as the biggest losers based on revenue sharing going away in 2016 (yeah, we're four years away from contending) but I've seen no mention of any owner, ours or otherwise, opposing any portion of the deal.  My guess is that the deal did not have to be unanimous to get approved, but based on the large number of changes made and the lack of any negative comments from anyone except Boras that it likely was unanimous.  Seems like the horror show that the NBA is going through was pretty big incentive to compromise.
