Selig Wants Worldwide Draft, Capped Bonuses

Commissioner Bud Selig wants MLB to adopt  a worldwide draft and more rigid bonuses for picks when the current collective bargaining agreement expires after 2011, according to Dave Sheinin of the Washington Post. Selig said the Nats and Stephen Strasburg agreed on a "fair" deal, but wants to cap the bonuses draftees receive. 

"There's no question in my mind, in 2011, certainly a slotting system and a worldwide draft are things we will be very aggressive talking about," Selig said.

Sheinin says a number of players are comfortable with the idea of capping bonuses for draftees, so there's potential for change when MLB negotiates the next CBA with the players' union.
