(Hopefully) good sports essays and observations for good sports by a guy who tries (and can sometimes fail) to be a good sport.

The Union Wouldn't, Would It?

The MLBPA has the right to nix the current drug policy and revert back to the prior one if the players and owners don't reach a deal on a collective bargaining agreement by August. Click here for all of the juicy details.

Congress is circling, waiting to strike.

The question is, will the players circle their wagons -- and fight?

If the players were to exercise this right, who would draw more derision, the players for doing so or the owners for giving them the right to do so?

All told, the game would suffer.

Baseball has made a significant amount of progress on the steroids issue, and there are certain times in life where people shouldn't hide behind their written agreements.

This is one of them.

Never underestimate the ego that drives Donald Fehr; and because his ego is so huge, do not delude yourself into thinking that he doesn't believe that he can take on the Congress and show them who's the boss.

The owners are complicit in the steroid era of baseball and the owners are a venal bunch of folks; but if this one "goes to the mattresses", it will be on account of Donald Fehr and his ego.
