Baseball union chief Donald Fehr continues to be optimistic about reaching a labor agreement with the owners, sources told ESPN.com's Jayson Stark on Tuesday.

Another good sign for the fans: The players are not ready to set a strike date.

I hope you're right. I personally don't think baseball can afford a repeat of the last strike.

More of Fehr playing the PR game,he wants to minimize the blame that the players will get for this work stoppage,even though most people know they should not recieve any blame.....

If I recall-he was optomistic last time, then suddenly a strike date was issued

If the owners would just drop the Luxury Tax plea, negotiations would go a lot smoother. I'm pretty sure the players would agree to an increase in revenue sharing (not 50%, maybe 33%).

We will remain firm and unresolving on all issues that involve salary relief for the owners,they are losing enough money as it is. I have the figures and books to prove it.

Anybody get struck with the thought that this is similar to the when the GM gives a manager a "Vote of Confidence" then fires him the next week?

Something seems a little too smooth.
