1. Only 20 Single A players may be chosen in a Free Agent Draft.
COMMENTARY: First, why 20? Here are the Single A totals in the previous three 10-round drafts: 17, 10, 16. The last 15-round draft (1943), 29.
Second, how will this help the BVL?
In theory, this will help clubs (a) that finish poorly by placing a limit on talent -- there'll be some to choose from, (b) there's no B (c) that don't closely follow the minors, thus evening the competitive unfairness.
Overall, this tackles -- head on -- a few issues mentioned here at the same time offering clubs flexibility in drafting their team, i.e., there are no set minimums.

Feels overly complicated. I'd rather each team be limited in the number of players on their Single-A roster. All that's going to happen is that everyone takes their Single-A players early on and fill out their roster at the end of the draft.
What I like about putting a limit on drafting Single A players, is that, yes, some teams will draft them sooner. That will leave teams to choose players that will help them now. I think that's something to like.
I don't understand what's complicated: a hard cap on Single A players, per draft. Maybe I didn't write it clearly enough?
