That is simply false.

    It is also unfair to criticize a sports union for being more concerned about fair compensation for veteran players who have proven their worth in MLB than about the bonus money being payed to teenagers who have proven nothing.

    Also, even if contrary to fact, the union wanted to limit international bonuses in order to leave more money for veterans, they would not want to enforce the luxury tax against the veterans! And that is what was posed by the question of whether signing bonuses counted toward the luxury tax.
    from what is known about the talks, the union proposed the IFA cap themselves. they should have just rejected all IFA limits entirely.

    the MLBPA screwed up the last CBA. short sighted stupidity.

    Known by whom? That is an incorrect characterization.

    You have a right to your opinion. But in my opinion, your opinion is both arrogant and ignorant.

    That's our second Arby's in town. Some say it's better, the fries are curlier, though I wouldn't know. I'm loyal to the original.
