    That's odd. Maybe more likeable and not as famous for using PED's?

    Yes of course, which is why I said players are looking out for their own rational self-interests, which is understandable. In fact, owners and players are typically always doing so. And in these...

    Fair enough. I've been hard at times on Contreras in the past but overall i'm cool with him, he's just an emotional guy and has brain farts sometimes or his enthusiasm gets the best of him because...

    Yeah we can let K's slide i agree. You don't want an entire lineup full of Cassie's but i'll definitely take 1 or 2. He's maybe like a poor man's Bryant, from the left side. Longer levers than...

    Big long power guy with long levers, probably going to strike out a lot no matter what. Can't get perfect with everyone i'll take 30 bombs and 140k's.

    We have to realize the fact that the owners don't run a charity. I take no pleasure defending them in any way, but this is just the business reality, they don't owe players anything, other than...

    Exactly. I don't care who wins these negotiations. It would be nice for players to get a bit more of the pie based on revenues, but if they don't I don't care that much. I hope the game comes out...

    The owners aren't likeable. Many of the players aren't likeable (they cheat for money without any regard for the integrity of the sport). I think both groups have equal power because the game can't...

    Agree about nationally but it's hard to say about locally. It's hard to say what attendance would be if Cubs had the Cards seating capacity.

    Cardinals get small-market bonus pool money for international signings. What a load of BS. They're consistently the #2 in the MLB in attendance after the Dodgers. They get more fans in the seats...

    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.

    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.
