Here is the story on Michel Abreu, the Cuban 1st baseman the Mets signed yesterday. The proven to be 31 year old is one big Cubano at 6'3" 230 lbs even if he can�t play he could be kept around in case of a bench clearing brawl. The MLPA is getting a war chest together as the CBA expires in December. I can�t see the owners locking out the players and you know the players won�t strike and leave al their gotten gains so it looks as tough the tag team of Fehr & Orza will just be investing their revenue cash for a tidy return. With the new drug testing agreement and the way the vast majority of the players wanted tougher testing it seems the union leaders and the rank & file are on different pages. Kind of like the TWU. < |
