    • CBT threshold: $230 million in 2023 and peaks at $244 million in final year of CBA;
    • Minimum salary: $700,000 and peaks at $780,000 in final year of CBA;
    • Pre-arb bonus pool: $50 million
    Can somebody explain to me why the third one was important? Was it rich teams/players vs poor teams?

      It's because players don't make money until they're arbitration eligible, but more and more teams just stock up on young, pre- arbitration talent.

      This is a way to get them some extra money earlier since teams aren't shelling out for the 35 year-old slugger off the bench anymore.

                      - Doubleheaders have reverted to 9 innings.
                      - Extra innings have reverted to normal. No more starting with runners.
                      - Universal DH now means the Mets can never legitimately win another World Series. Since Kep thinks it's not real baseball.

                        • I'm going to admit to Creeping Meatballism of my own.

                          If anyone tries to claim I said this, I will deny it.








                          Spoiler:

                          I liked 7-inning double headers.

                          • I saw an interesting proposal. Keep the DH for the starter but once that person leaves the game, DH goes away.

                            It gives the best of both worlds. No need to run out a ****ty hitter every third inning and preserves the NL's double-switch, etc. moves we all love.

                              Huh.

                              That's... actually decent. I wish they had thought of it as a compromise 20 years ago.

                                Major League Baseball players who are not vaccinated against the coronavirus won't be allowed to travel into Canada to face the Blue Jays in Canada and won't be paid for those games.
