So I guess MLB and the MLBPA are going to release daily statements sniping at each other now? Earlier today MLBPA chief Tony Clark released a statement saying the sheer number of tanking teams “threatens the very integrity of our game.” MLB then shot back with a statement saying the free agent market is the result of the “failure of some agents to accurately assess the market.” MLB also played the, “Owners own teams for one reason: they want to win” card, which is laughable. That said, blaming the league’s problems on the players’ greed rather than the owners’ greed is a guaranteed win for MLB, so it’s no surprise they went that route. Rough days ahead for baseball.
Anyway, here is the open thread. The Knicks, Nets, and Devils are all playing tonight. Talk about those games, the end of baseball’s labor peace as we know it, or anything else where. Just not politics or religion. Thanks in advance.
