Barely avoiding the worst commissioner in history?
MLB: Looks like the lockout will finally open.
I've written many times that we will also have parallel discussions, especially the difficult international draft, which seems to be a parallel process. This is a good thing.
It can be said that they managed to get to the brink, but in fact it was a result of the players' association breaking down.
Of course, Manfred's brinkmanship strategy worked, and the owners' evaluation will be good...I don't know if it will be good or not, but it is significant that they were able to pass the opinion of the organization in the end.
It depends on the future, but he may have managed to avoid becoming the worst commissioner in history.
