I like Rob Manfred so much better than Bud Selig.  He makes things happen... he doesn't sit there palms up with no solutions.

Manfred goes belly to the table, sits with the rest and makes deals.  Impressive.

Quick note.  MLB and the union have an agreement!  USA Today writes:

"Major League Baseball and the players union, knowing there was far too much at stake for an impasse, agreed to a new five-year collective bargaining agreement Wednesday night less than four hours before their current deal expired.

The deal, which still needs to be ratified by the owners and players, means there will be 26 consecutive years without a work stoppage since the 1994-95 players’ strike that cancelled the 1994 World Series."

2 significant developments. The All-Star game no longer determines home advantage in the World Series and the Disabled list is now 10 games as opposed to 15.

Life is good when it comes to baseball.

So happy this is behind us!
