Let's take the top story first.
Maybe if MLB paid their Minor Leaguers a fair wage over the lifetime of baseball the players might nit have a chip on their shoulders when it is time for arbitration. Maybe baseball should figure out a way not to short change the players in their contracts to begins with.
Second story- I feel the owners that don't want to spend money or reinvest in their teams aren't thrilled with Cohen. They might feel they have a target on their backs from their fans for not spending.
Third Story- MLB relied on regional sports networks instead of realizing that they have all this teah and diff ways to show the games. They just want that TV money.
Baseball basically has and is continuing to put itself in a choke hold until its going to choke itself out.
