I don't agree with what the owners are doing, but I have no sympathy for the players as they collectively bargained this contract. They didn't care for the ridiculous system when crazy contracts were being handed out to aging players.

They could have done better in the CBA, I agree. But it's easier to align the interests of 30 owners than it is for 1200 players at different points of their career.

Bingo, they are always at a massive disadvantage in these negotiations.

Neil Walker signing for $5 million. Nothing to see there!

And initially, the Yankees wanted Gleyber Torres at 2B. Getting Walker could be a sleeper if he stays healthy and is productive.

That's fair - but it's really a small group of players, and by default agents, who make the decisions on behalf of the whole - and they've never made a serious attempt at changing the admittedly BS system because the big stars and agents were getting their huge ridiculous paydays well into their 30s.

I totally agree the owners are screwing them, but they're screwing them within the parameters of the CBA.

The players have the power to strike. The owners wouldn't dare allow that to happen again. They need to use their power and make meaningful change.

It's very weird having the Mets open at home and not live in New York anymore - and will be twice as strange next Thursday when they go on the road and it's down the street.
