Another week has come and gone without MLB and the MLBPA agreeing to a new CBA. On Tuesday, the outcome that baseball fans were hoping to avoid, happened.
The two sides are still far, far apart on the figures for the competitive balance tax (ahem, salary cap) and the pre-arbitration bonus pool.
The grass will be greener on the other side, but there’s no doubt that it’s already greener at Dodger Stadium.
Former Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig helped inject some levity into an otherwise distressful week in baseball.
In that same vein, reliever Joe Kelly dropped his usual In-N-Out order on live radio. His order is fitting of his off-the-wall personality.
But back to baseball. Another well-respected baseball reporter threw another log on the Freddie Freeman-to-LA rumors.
Max Muncy explained why he’s all for LA signing Freeman.
That wasn’t the only Muncy news of the week either.
The Athletic reported that there’s one team that is likely out of the running to sign Muncy’s good friend – Hall-of-Famer Albert Pujols.
Speaking of free agents, a former LA player believes Kershaw will likely only sign with one team and one team only.
