Dayton Moore on CBA: What Me Worry?

Dayton Moore is the GM of the Royals. In a recent interview in the Kansas City Star, he shrugged off concerns regarding the draft spending limits.

"It’s actually better than the (recommendations put out by the commissioner’s office in the previous) slotting system,” he said, “where the commissioner would put pressure on owners, and owners would put pressure on general managers.

“We always had a budget. Now, our budget is going to be mandated by the CBA (collective-bargaining agreement). You have to work within the budget, and that’s what we’ll be prepared to do.”


Moore also noted that the Royals spent the way they did in anticipation of the new rules. (I'm not noting any parallels here, or anything.) Any problems will arise as the team becomes more competitive. Right now a team with a big draft pool can afford to take a flyer or two on a player who plans to go to college. A team with a small pool really will have trouble doing that.

One last quote from Dayton:

“Again, it comes down to scouting and player development. You’ve still got to pick the right guys, and you still have to develop them.”

So, chillax. The CBA is not the end of the world. It may not even be a problem.
