Given how many teams were above $185 million vs how few were below $100 million (and how close most under were to $100 million), this seems like a nonstarter

...and we're sucking wind with almost $60MM in dead money to Strasburg and Corbin...

Saw some of the back and forth on MLBTR about this and honestly, if the MLB offered that as their starting point, I think they are fueling the fires for work stoppage.

Should have started with at least 110 floor and 205 luxury tax. I doubt the tax will go down from where it is at 210, but offering something that low makes me think the owners don't care about the real threat of work stoppage.

Billionaires and Multi-millionaires not at all having an idea of what the environment is like. Not surprised.....

It will be interesting to see how they offer to enforce the minimum.

Do like the NFL, take the deficiency and put it into a pool to give to players who were on the team.

I remember hearing a story, I think it was the 76ers, where the players on a tanking team were furious that the team took on salary at the deadline and cost everyone delinquency funds
