Good morning Angels fans, hope you had a happy 2’s day yesterday. Here, have some links.
Still no deal with the owners and the players. At least they will meet every day now? That should have happened since the start!
The sides did talk a lot yesterday, which was nice. Nothing on the collective bargaining tax, which looks to be the biggest issue.
MLBPA lowered their demands for super 2 arbitration player count to 75% and lottery number to 7. I still don’t see how a lottery helps tanking to begin with. MLB drafting is way more of a guesswork than the other sports.
If there is a deal made, the pay scale could be based on WAR, which means that sabermetrics will be under an even bigger scrutiny than before.
Freddie Freeman is not happy with the Braves’ offer and wants a 6th year. Arte Moreno don’t you dare.
Josh Hamilton had pleaded guilty. Rev was right and everyone just didn’t want to admit it.
Stroman really does not like Billy Eppler. Yet he signed with the Cubs… huh…
