    I thought it eliminated the possibility of trading draft picks? And certainly trading players for draft picks or picks for players?

    I believe draft picks can be traded but players can not.

    I have read that as well in numerous sources. The funny thing is though, we can draft 'em but we can't sign 'em until the CBA is in place. I hope the mediation does the trick.

    one would only be able to trade the draft picks themselves; no trades involving any players, previously signed or recently drafted

    (which of course, yeah, pretty much isn't going to result in likely as many trades)

    correct. what he said

    Draft can be traded for other drafted picks, but players cannot be traded. Also, undrafted players can't be signed until a CBA is signed.

    I have seen where the union is threatening to decertify but I didn't know it was 'now or you have to wait 6 months'. good article.

    They'll likely decertify meaning players can then sue as individuals and the lawyers make a ton of money while there is no football. Eventually the courts get involved. Guess I'll start paying attention to the Orioles
