I was in FL. We never offered the Int.l Draft. While we discussed it, MLB informed us that they wouldn't offer anything. At that point, we informed all players & agreed to no draft.
This is MLB muddying the waters & deflecting blame. Fans, please be patient with us.

No matter which side you are on, ultimatums and deadlines haven’t worked so far. I don't get why we have to keep giving deadlines and cancelling games. Let's just keep meeting every day until we achieve the one thing that we all desire. To play baseball.
