Yankees/MLB Hot Stove Report: New CBA, Kemp Extension, 40-Man, MVP Predictions

A lot of news and rumors around baseball today. Let's get to them.

  • The owners and players have reached a verbal agreement on a new 5-year collective bargaining agreement three weeks ahead of schedule. Among the new inclusions are: "soft slotting" of draft picks and international free agents, where if a club goes over the allotted amount of money, they'll be taxed on it; fewer Type-A free agents, meaning it'll be tougher for players to truly earn that rating; penalties for clubs that don't spend enough on payroll; and of course, an extra wild card team in each league and a one-game playoff to determine the which club advances to the (real) postseason. 
  • Brian Cashman isn't confident that the Bros. Stein will OK another lucrative, long-term expenditure, specifically for Yu Darvish.
  • I made my MVP predictions over at the YES Network.
