MLB Labor Piece Until 2011

What is MLB thinking? Did you hear the news earlier this week that baseball players and owners finalized a new five-year collective bargaining agreement? All right, a show of hands of people who really care about this news. you think it would have been beneficial to hold this news until the winter. The League "should" be generating enough news from the snoozer of a World Series. Maybe PR thought this was the best time to make the announcement.

Considering the League almost when "belly up" during its last strike in 1994, you would think they would have made a bigger splash with this news. There were no threats for each side or emergency meetings. These negotiations were handled quietly.

MLB needs to continue to make noise at the national level and they should have held this news and announced it this winter.
