    It’s not a well thought out system, that’s for sure. I don’t really understand why being in a bottom 10 market should qualify a team for a pick, for instance. It should really just be a revenue thing. If a team is good, it will have good revenue. If a team is bad, but is in a large market, it will have good revenue. There are 14 out of the 30 teams getting these picks. Any system like this that awards picks to the cardinals and doesn’t award a pick to the tigers is a broken system. Here are the AL teams that don’t get a pick yankees red sox blue jays white sox tigers astros rangers angels mariners here are the NL teams that don’t get a pick mets phillies nationals braves cubs dodgers giants ridiculous

    Lynn just has those holiday blues. By May he will be talking up the tigers prospects as future all stars again.

    I’ve been on the GL Christmas ale for a few weeks already. It’s my favorite of all of the Christmas ales.

    I’m already in love with this iteration of the team. Big fan of livers.

    Hemming with the unprompted positive tweet about an AL central team. He must have had a bad Cabernet.

    Found this from a BA article: Competitive Balance Rounds The next key changes relate to the Competitive Balance Rounds. Previously, the order of those rounds was determined by a lottery. The lottery system is gone, and has been replaced by a new system for assigning picks. Teams in bottom-10 markets and with bottom-10 revenue have been assigned picks in either Competitive Balance Round A—which follows the first round—or Competitive Balance Round B—which follows the second round. Those assignments are based on a formula that takes winning percentage and local revenue into account. In lieu of a lottery, the eligible clubs will alternate between Round A and Round B over the duration of the five-year CBA, so teams that pick in Round A in 2017 will again have Round A picks in 2019 and 2021. Round A and Round B designations also correspond with international bonus pools. Teams picking in Competitive Balance Round A receive a $5.25 international allotment, while teams picking in Round B receive $5.75 million. The Competitive Balance Round assignments for the 2017 draft are as follows, in order of how they will pick: Competitive Balance Round A: • Tampa Bay Rays • Cincinnati Reds • Oakland Athletics • Milwaukee Brewers • Minnesota Twins • Miami Marlins Competitive Balance Round B: • Arizona Diamondbacks • San Diego Padres • Colorado Rockies • Cleveland Indians • Kansas City Royals • Pittsburgh Pirates • Baltimore Orioles • St. Louis Cardinals These picks can be traded after the beginning of the season.

    I can’t remember where I saw it, but I thought I saw something about the competitive balance designations being pre-set at the last CBA, so the tigers won’t qualify until the next one.

    The corroboration comes from the other details. Like the impromptu netjet flight to Florida. Or the lie about the kid not having contact with his dad. Or the “no comment” response. I feel like I need to read the article again at this point.

    Game 10 Carolina Panters @ Detroit Lions. It's Cat-Tastic!

    Sure. You can go either way. But that’s pretty much why there is no sense in criticizing the guy. You either make the play or you don’t. And for what it’s worth, the play pretty much worked. Newton had all day and made a horrible unforced error on the throw. He probably could have run it in, too. He probably didn’t bother because the pass became wide open.

    I think one simple explanation is that something else happened that was also bad, or that the slur was said at another time. what incentive does the dad have to make up this story?
