If baseball and the other sports have their plans changed by an outbreak of this virus, most fans would no doubt understand. But if the only obstacle standing in the way of playing is dollars? Hoo boy. Good luck explaining that away.
A fantastic piece by Jayson Stark about the ongoing MLB labor disputes.
I’m pro-players in these disputes. The owners and MLBPA came to an agreement months ago, but now the owners no longer like what they agreed to. Additionally, the players have a limited amount of time to earn money playing baseball, while the owners have years and years to recoup whatever losses they face this season.
