It is increasingly likely that the new CBA will include a lottery to determine the top of the amateur draft order (rather than simply going by the previous season’s reverse standings). Marlins fans may appreciate such a change considering their team has not held the No. 1 overall draft pick since 2000 despite frequently posting terrible records during that span.

As we were recording this pod, MLB officially canceled three more days of spring training games (through March 7). In total, 11 of the 30 Grapefruit League games originally on the Marlins’ schedule have now been removed.

There will be a sixth straight day of bargaining at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium on Saturday.
