New Collective Bargaining Agreement in Major League Baseball

Can you really call playing baseball labor?  These guys get millions of dollars a year for playing a boys game.  Sometimes these multimillionaires act like children, but there is labor peace for several years.  I really think that the baseball strike of 1994-95 was really devastating and must never happen again.

The one thing I like about this agreement is that the All-Star game will not decide what team gets the extra home game in a 7 game World Series.  The pennant winning team with the better record will get the home field advantage now.  Another change is that the minimum time on the disabled list is reduced from 15 to 10 games.

Please see this article in SB Nation for a further discussion.
