    We'll agree to disagree. Without Correa, there wouldn't have been McCullers or Ruiz. The whole package of that draft to get a legit top 5 prospect...

    Yes, until they've officially signed a contract, the person is simply an adviser except for college seniors who have no more eligibility. In the...

    Thanks to the way baseball has antitrust exemption, this is not an issue that can hit the courts. It could go to arbitration, but the players do not...
