Awesome...looks like we can add another year or two onto the Tigers' rebuilding process.

none of this is news. It's the reason they got rid of the players when they did and the Tigers weren't going to sign anybody of significance anyway.

Did you even read the article? The new CBA, which it talks about, took effect this year. While some knew what was in it, they did not know how it affected their team. It is also says that DET, unlike other teams, have been affected the most by the rule changes.

Additionally, what this points out, is that even if DET had remained competitive through this season, that their hands would have been tied this offseason. This was going to be the last year, win or lose.

Unlike you, to some this is going to be news.

"The Detroit Tigers won’t be signing any of this year’s elite class of free agent players during the winter, and not just because they’re in rebuilding mode."

I don't think this part hurts because I don't believe Detroit was going to sign a premium free agent. It is because rebuilding mode. Why trade away 20+m player just to sign another 20+ player? Makes no sense so Detroit wasn't going to sign an elite guy.

Increased penalties for signing qualified free agents
This could effect us depending on would have been targets for Detroit.But that's a wait and see.

No competitive balance round draft picks
Slightly effects us.

Less International bonus money to spend

Again, slightly, but Detroit isn't alone in this.

At least that is my take.
