So they offered him 13.3M which was the top 100 average or something like that. He'll reject it and the Cardinals will get a compensation pick which as i understood it was in the compensation round which is between rounds 1 and 2, Is that new with the new CBA?
I'm hard pressed to remember the last time I was excited about the amount of talent coming in.
No, it's been that way for years. In fact, I thought the compensation had changed with the new CBA. I can't remember how it works now.

Actually, the way Hallowed Hill stated it is correct. They didn't just have to offer Lohse arbitration, they had to offer him a much higher "qualifying offer". An offer that makes it much more likely a player will occasionally take the one year deal. It's considered a much higher risk.
The compensation has changed a bit but I am too lazy to go find what it is.
This was exactly what I was saying. I remember exactly how the old system worked, and I understood the deal with qualifying offers.
I think I was mistaking compensation for all players, which hasn't changed much, with compensation for players acquired midseason. Now, if you trade for someone near the deadline, you can't get a high draft pick as compensation for losing that player in free agency.
Okay. I misunderstood what you were saying. 10am games (mountain time) are way too early for a Saturday and I'm not mentally functioning yet.
