    Wow,how imagine the national media would blow the story up if the Marlins did that! At least this was written up a bit.
  2. Wow. My first instinct with player grievances, sadly, is to assume it's BS and the player is being a whiny punk but this one seems beyond legit. Eight other players recalled before him, nine days after Sept. 1st, waiting three days after the playoffs, and it all happens to add up to exactly one less day of service time? Super fishy business there.

    What's the problem? Rules is rules. Service time is service time, you either have the requisite amount or you don't. Of course, they "manipulated" his service time, they're not stupid.

    What's next, whining about being 2 days short? 5 days? 10? A month? Why bother having a CBA? MLB teams get this junk in writing for a reason.

    He should've performed better, then he would've exceeded the time easily.
  5. I guess the question isn't if they manipulated his service time, but if its considered ok that they did it.

    I think the team should have the right to do that.
