Hey guys, great thread. I somehow missed the last week of this, just picked up on it today.
So let me know if I got this straight. Sounds like there are 3 classes of player.
1- Subject to the reserve clause, not eligible for arbitration (those falling below the super 2 class)
2- Subject to the reserve clause, but ELIGIBLE for salary arbitration.
3-Free agent eligible, ie not subject to the reserve clause.
We won't know where J. Patterson falls until the end of the season, with regards to the super 2 class.
Can somebody explain what the 10-5 rule is? This is being cited in the case of Jamie Moyer, somehow giving him veto power over where he will go.
