NFT: Trevor Bauer's rant about MLB

DanMetroMan : 2/13/2020 5:17 pm
He's polarizing and often an ass but he NAILED it here. Manfred is an awful commish
Link - ( New Window )
I thought Manfred was OK before recently  
Greg from LI : 2/13/2020 5:21 pm : link
But he's having one helluva bad offseason. First the weak response to the Astros' cheating, then this ludicrous playoff format.
said it many times

every sport needs players like Bauer but i'm glad he isn't on the Yankees.

He is a must-follow on twitter.
Agreed, Manfred is giving Tagliabue and a few others a run

Tagliabue? There quite a few worse than Tagliabue.
Gotta mean

Goodell & NHLís Bettman not far behind
MookGiants : 2/13/2020 7:30 pm : link
was a very good commissioner.

Bettman and Goodell are the two worst.

Manfreds having a brutal off-season but on the whole has done a good job prior to this off-season.
the negotiations  
MookGiants : 2/13/2020 7:31 pm : link
when the next CBA comes up are going to be interesting. The players got destroyed in the last negotiations, I'm surprised tony clark is still in charge after he failed miserably already.
I just donít understand  
MetsAreBack : 2/13/2020 8:10 pm : link
Why he thinks having more playoff teams is going to get a family of 4 to now give up an entire Sunday and fork over at least $800 to have their kids actually be able to see what the players look like.... (to pay entitled brats $20-40 mil a year)...

And a Sunday night show where teams pick opponents is going to generate all this extra playoff interest when the games themselves routinely take over 4 hours. I rarely watch a non Mets playoff game - itís like watching paint dry... and even the Mets used to be a challenge.

Fix playoff pace of play And make going to games affordable for those who canít take a tax deduction on the seats - those are your issues ó once youíve actually done that, feel free to tinker as needed
He nailed it

with the marketability. I'm not sure what MLB is doing.
DanMetroMan : 2/14/2020 11:33 am : link
someone explain to me the thought process regarding making it so hard to find highlights? How is MLB hoping to monetize this?
jestersdead : 2/14/2020 12:34 pm : link
needs to take the basketball approach and market individual players. One of the main reasons the NBA has climbed back to a level of enjoyment is because they market their young stars. Every league has some kind of uniform policy regarding cleats but I would to see some different footwear on players and that includes the NFL
Paul Tagliabue

Paul Tagliabue was an outstanding commissioner. A group of prominent CEOs voted him the best commissioner in sports. Paul had business acumen.

During the Tagliabue-era the league supported the construction of some 20 new stadiums, created a league-wide Internet network and the subscriber based NFL TV. Paul scored the largest television contracts in entertainment history, totaling some $25 billion dollars.
