Ron Blum is a national reporter/columnist for the AP. Today he had a column regarding the baseball labor situation that was printed in a number of newspapers around the country. Allow me to quote you a few of the opening paragraphs...

QUOTE: "Cutting through the smoke screens and spins, there's a good chance baseball can end its labor losing streak and avoid a strike.

That doesn't necessarily mean peace is at hand.

For baseball to make a deal by Aug. 30 and avoid its ninth work stoppage since 1972, Commissioner Bud Selig just has to ignore the hard-line owners.

Jerry Reinsdorf of the White Sox , John Moores of the Padres, and Stan Kasten of the Braves repeatedly have spoken at owners' meetings of the need to finally get fiscal restraint from players, no matter what it takes. Pittsburgh's Kevin McClatchy, Kansas City's David Glass, Houston's Drayton McLane and Texas' Tom Hicks also have advocated radical change."

I find it interesting that Reinsdorf's name was the first one mentioned don't you? Obviously Uncle Jerry is back trying to destroy the sport and his own team just so his insufferable ego, arrogance and vindictiveness can be soothed.

We've got a hell of an owner eh? Our only saving grace is that he's 66 and can't live forever.

If they strike, let's just hope he sells as he worries about losing money since he's so broke.
