Deadline For MLB Draft Pick Signings
THE BUCK STOPS HERE: In Daytona Beach, Dave Markowitz writes, "All the talk about how the draft must change is just another way of saying ... that baseball teams again have to be saved from themselves. All the entrepreneurs and corporations that comprise the ownership of baseball's 30 teams can accumulate millions and millions of dollars in the business world, but in the baseball world they suddenly have to be taught the meaning of a buck." Markowitz: "Teams want slotting ... because it takes away all the bargaining and all the risk of contract negotiations. Too bad the players don't have someone to absorb the risk for them" (NEWS-JOURNALONLINE.com, 8/20).
