He's acting like many people do these days and saying "I'm not 100% getting my way so it's going to just get worse for those who oppose me."This is horrible.
Also Manfred has been big on introducing baseball to more kids recently... doesn't he realize that screwing over the minor leagues will severely impact and exposure that kids get to the sport?
I could be wrong on that, as they may technically have a contract with the Major League Club (don't they? As the MLB club controls their promotions and such), but suddenly instead of a 25/26 or 40 man roster, it has to become a ... 200 man roster? Manfred isn't thinking AT ALL about any of this. Players can no longer properly develop within a system implemented by the main team.Whoa I didn't think about that
This feels like something that can't actually get approved because it's so stupid that maybe we don't have to worry about it.MLB would likely create their own new development system I assume or let teams set up contracts with independent league teams or something? Unless this is all just an empty threat anyway.
It's truly serious when Das and I can see eye to eye on stuff.Manfred is an idiot and playing a game he wont win.
there is no fucking way they will eliminate these partnerships, its Manfred trying to get something out of the slave system known as Minor League baseball.
