Finally out of the penalty phase.  Time to go sign some International studs for the Birds on the Bat.

It means 12 teams have the same or higher amount of pools money than us, so it's necessary to add more if we target the best prospects.

can we acquire more money if we promise teams to let Chen pitch at least twice each series for a couple innings?

This is brilliant.

We should be active in the international market but, imo, it is no easy fix and we still have to focus our scouting attention on the draft.  I say this for two reasons.

First, the Trump administration's revocation of the deal with the Cuban baseball federation would seemingly hurt the Marlin's plans of going after top Cuban talent. 

Second, also, sure about you all, but I'm a little discouraged with VV Mesa starting out in Jupiter.  Maybe that is just a conservative approach to his development, but I would have thought with his credentials that he would be further along.

Mesa had gone some considerable amount of time since last playing competitively so he was always going to need some adjustment time.  His spring injury was a setback to everything.

So beginning in July we can begin to acquire additional pool money up to 60% of original allocation (3,563,880).  Max possible pool for marlins:9,503,680

You can trade for up to 75% of your original pool, in 250K increments.

Also, FWIW, the Marlins' amateur draft pool is 4th highest at $13,045,000.

I knew the $250k figure.  Where did you get the 75% limit?  The article says 60% but that could be wrong
