Gerrit Cole sucks lolololol
Lost last night as well. They're now .500 and only a half game up on the Orioles for the final WC spot.The Blue Jays just dropped a 10 spot on the Yankees in the 6th inning to take a 12-6 lead. Regardless of circumstances with injuries, it's insane to see them collapse like this.
Will be 5-14 over their last 19 games if the current score holds.
Expansion draft setup has varied - no 1 set method each time. That includes amount of advanced notice & starting a developmental/ minor league system for the expansion groups..With more rumors floating towards baseball expanding in the number of teams, does anyone remember how the expansion draft works?
Personally in a way, I would love to be someone who runs a team so an expansion team would be fun to run. But how do teams get to choose who is on their roster to start the season?
@MadThinker88 or anyone else that may know, I am curious how this could all play out?
I worry MLB would follow the NHL’s most recent expansion rules that allowed Vegas to instantly become highly competitive through wholesale trades of assets for an agreement to not draft certain players.Expansion draft setup has varied - no 1 set method each time. That includes amount of advanced notice & starting a developmental/ minor league system for the expansion groups..
That said, basically there is an agreement reached on who could be eligible to be drafted (based on development & service time in baseball in general (counting time in minors only)), a number of players each existing organization can initially "protect", and then how many additional players can be additionally protected after each round of expansion drafting.
IIRC a deeper system - like CLE or Tampa would not lose 2 players before a team w/ weak system (MKE, Boston) loses 1 player..
