With ownership meetings raging on this winter, new changes have been made in MLB policy, including a six-month waiting period on team president compensation and expanding the post season into December. However, no change has been larger than demoting the entire NL Central to Triple-A.
Major League Baseball Commissioner Bug Selig explained the move.
“There simply is not enough talent, after this off-season, to remain in the major leagues,” said Selig. “One team is liable to make the playoffs with 70 wins. It’s time we call up the Albuquerque Isotopes or Toledo Mud Hens for their chance. Advanced sabermetrics project them winning more games than the Cubs and Pirates combined.”
