Motor City Bengals: Kyle Lohse Speculation

Anybody got some Lohse change?

Every signing that [the Indians] have made has surprised folks that they were willing and able to spend the money and come with the certainty that NOW the Indians must be tapped out. Maybe they aren’t… and Lohse is a definite fit for a team that basically pitched itself out of the division race last season. The draft pick wouldn’t matter a bit – if I’m not mistaken, all they would lose would be a fourth rounder. The Kansas City Royals are another team that obviously can’t afford to put more money into payroll – but would probably make a great fit for Lohse.

An interesting situation... might it be worth it to a team to 'punt' a draft in order to get 3 top free agents? I know Jay fans were hoping the Jays would be doing this once they knew their first round pick was protected, but instead did the Miami & Mets trades to get 3 starting pitchers plus a shortstop and others. I know in the past there was a limit to how many type A's you could sign (I think it was 3) but don't know if that still applies to the new method.

If you really want to slow down free agency make it so each pick lost is a first or second round one - if you use them all up then you lose that pick the following year and so on.
