Great job 'fixing' the broken system, MLB.
Yeah, basically a Boras like agent would only use that additional slotting money against the pirates and say they have additional money to spend and their client wont sign unless they get all of it. It's just such an assanine system and as much as I enjoy the pirates they have the worst run league in professional sports.
