Minor League Baseball Realities

18 July, 2017

Minor League Baseball realities are far-removed from the Major League realities.  We recently wrote an article about the MLB Draft 2017: What Happens After the Draft, in which we detailed the signings of draftees and how they are then shipped off to various levels in the minor league systems. But what happens then? What is life like for a minor league baseball player? One thing we can say, with total certainty, is that it is not glamorous. Minor League baseball players, for instance, r [...]

2017 MLB Trade Deadline is Confusing This Year

11 July, 2017

2017 MLB Trade Deadline is rapidly approaching, and this may well be the most confusing year yet. Why? Because of the two wildcard berths available for the playoffs, and because of the league balance, especially in the American League, very few teams are “out of it” as July comes to a close.  In fact, in the American League, the team with the worst record is still only 7 ½ games out of a playoff berth.  In the National League there are five teams which could be considered out of it, [...]

MLB Draft 2017: What Happens After Signings

05 July, 2017

MLB Draft 2017 is now three weeks in the past. The smoke has cleared, the selections have been made, all eyes are again on the pennant races, but what happens to those who were drafted? We all hear about the selections, but does anyone really know what happens after those selections are made? What happens is the process of assigning signing bonuses based on each team’s limit, called a bonus pool, and the slot recommendations for each round of signings.  In other words, a second round draft [...]

Player Relocation Merry Go Round

27 June, 2017

Player relocation merry-go-round goes round and round, and where it stops, nobody knows. A silly little play on words based on the famous children’s song, but also a very clear and accurate look at the world of professional athletes. The NBA Draft was conducted last week.  The week before that, the MLB AmateurDraft was held, and in a little over one month the MLB will have their trade deadline and the NFL teams will begin their camps and tryouts. What do all these things have in common? [...]

Inglewood Stadium Delayed One Year

30 May, 2017

Inglewood Stadium, future home of the Los Angeles Rams and Chargers, will be delayed in opening for one year due to two months of torrential rains which severely delayed work on the 298-acre sports and entertainment center. 15.4 inches of rain fell on the worksite from November to February, at times leaving a lake where excavation had begun.  The decision was finally made to postpone opening until 2020.  NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told the NFL league’s 32-team owners of the delay rece [...]
