Wow. They really lowered the hammer on the Braves. I suspect it is as much to make an example of them and discourage other teams from doing the same as it is just punishment for their transgressions.

The article says that teams can use this years international free agent money and dip into next years pool but it does not say that signing these free agents is under the international rules. I guess it is implied but it is not stated. Nor does it say whether the restrictions already on the Sox and other teams apply to these guys. I am assuming so but it seems kind of unfair as we weren't under those restrictions when these guys were first available.

Does anyone know for sure what the rules governing their signing will be?

Has anyone seen a list of the full dozen?
