I have been reading about potentailly slotting the amount of money draft picks get here and here. I was wondering what you guys think about having the sort of draft system where each pick can get paid only so much money. I feel it evens out the playing field a bit as teams won't get Rick Porcello'ed. I think it is noteworthy that with a slotted system we would have zero chance of drafting Stephen Strasburg this year as Scott Boras would not be allowed to demand $50 million from the Nationals for him. However, since it seems to be the consensus that our 2nd overall pick will be Dustin Ackley who is also a Boras client, we should still be paying a hefty sum which in a slotted system would be less, theoretically. So tell me what you think.
