one year passes...

Every year in a private meeting, MLB hands out “The Belt” — a replica wrestling belt — to the team that did the most to keep player salaries down in arbitration. @MarcCarig on arbitration as the next front in baseball’s strained labor relations: https://t.co/64D95AD6U3

re Acuna, an EW listener on FB asks,

"If every major star is locked up to a long-term extension before the CBA expires, does that increase or decrease the likelihood of a work stoppage?"

it does feel like extension fever is teams scrambling to be able to say "see? we pay players!" when negotiations roll around

MLBPA Exec Dir Tony Clark: "We are interested in restoring meaningful free agency." Union is beginning an unprecedented round of mid-term bargaining with the league. Uncertainty as to where those talks go.

Stephanie Apstein in SI:

“I think we have unknowingly conceded a lot,” said Rays righty Charlie Morton. “Maybe not unknowingly. Maybe that’s the wrong word. You can read the CBA. You can know what’s in there. When you hear it, it sounds nice. And then three years later, you’re like, What did we just do? And now everybody’s pretty upset.”

This is not a fair fight. Players association head Tony Clark oversees 750 constituents who are aggrieved and cannot agree on why. Commissioner Rob Manfred is responsible for 30 ownership groups whose interests are simple and largely aligned: Make and keep as much money as possible.
