MLB Labor Agreement Expected to be Announced Monday

1

Maury Brown discusses a few of the new Labor Agreement scenarios. In the article, he mentions the possibility of a luxury tax for teams at or below a bottom threshold (yet to be determined). But let's say it is $40M, as suggested in the article. A club would still receive revenue sharing, but if the payroll does not increase after 2 years, they would be taxed. I'm going to get some sleep, and figure this out tomorrow. It's sort of/kind of a salary-cap. Or it has that feel to it. I don't have a problem with this, except that it seems like another poke at teams who - - um - - - rely on the Rule IV draft and international development to not spend, or something. Selig is a real trip, isn't he?
