Would you support a rule that required owners to sell?

The rule would force an owner to sell if, for example, the team ended two or three consecutive seasons at, say .350 or .400.

It's late and I'm not feeling very creative, but maybe you can come up with some ideas.

I'd support this rule. Maybe I'll send a note to Rob Manfred.

Why would you want such a rule? Three years isn't long enough to rebuild a team, and with as many teams as there are now, there are always going to be teams at the bottom.

The draft, though, has been altered to not reward teams that intentionally underperform. This is a good rule, IMO.
