    Robo umps are nonsense. They've had umps for 150 years, it's integral to the game. Yelling at an ump for a bad call is baseball. 30 years from now they'll bring back human ball-strike calls...

    I would think they don't want to lose that revenue, or make the fans PO'd which will reduce revenue.

    I really don't even care about these negotiations, just wake me up when they have a deal.

    Here's an interesting question: If we pretend a CBA deal is signed tomorrow, would Spring Training games even start on time given COVID?

    Congrats to Lester, great career. Not sure if it's good enough for HOF, but he's close, especially if the voters value rings.

    The owners and MLB ruined baseball in Florida from the beginning. They should relocate both teams and maybe try again in Florida in a decade with an actual business plan that isn't garbage.

    I think the owners have more to lose than players if the season loses games and ticket sales etc are affected. If I were the players I'd stick to a somewhat strong but reasonable position and wait...

    Backloading can save teams a bit of money due to inflation. Inflation also means team revenue, luxury tax limits, and average team payrolls will be higher 10 years from now.

    It's not "the truth", it's your opinion. The 3rd option is that your opinion is wrong. I'm going with option 3. If you can't see how it's rude and an insult then i'm not the one with a reading...

    I agree these can also be reasons why they got Gomes. We have no idea about Hoyer's intent, we can only speculate. If he's serious about winning in 2022 he won't trade Willson this offseason unless...

    What have we seen that says the Cubs won't ever sign someone over 3 years? If there's reports of interest in Correa, and the Cubs mean it, then that's obviously not true.

    I don't think they'd refuse to sign a long-term deal or refuse to sign a guy with a QO, I think things being more or less equal they'd prefer not to sign these deals if they can avoid it.

    Would be nice if the Cubs grabbed a couple of infielders with potential to play in Iowa as a possible replacement for Bote if he struggles again. I can't see Bote replacing Wisdom full time.
