I don’t really have a joke here. Recap is liable to be late tonight.
Anyway, it appears that draft pick compensation is no more, either this offseason or next. Hard to tell what the results of this would mean. It should make free agents cost slightly more while making the trade value of veterans approaching free agency less. It makes it a lot more likely that the Braves will trade Marcus in the offseason since he would leave without compensation afterwards.
That being said, a few years ago compensation was supposed to be dead and it wound up part of the CBA anyway.
