I really don’t like the redone Star Wars movies. This new ending of a New Hope, where the Death Star doesn’t have a very obvious weakness and can’t be blown up by a farmer with about two minutes of training on an X-Wing is just terrible.

So we are going to without baseball for, well, who knows how long.

I get that Manfred wants to break the union. But he is going to break the fans. I don’t know how they think that cancelling games is a good idea for the long-term health of the sport. At worst they should end the lockout and play under the old CBA for a bit.

Anyway, yesterday’s ‘hope’ was just the owners' side trying to sell us on the idea that they had offered the players something they could accept.

The players weren’t exactly thrilled with the last day of dealing:

The ‘best and final offer’?

I don’t know what the plan is, but I have a sneaking suspicion that they are going to stop testing for PEDs when this all ends so they can ask us if we’d all like to watch some dingers.

I wish the people running our sport liked the game. We need owners (and a commissioner) who are fans of baseball.
