[Just after midnight Eastern time Friday morning, the Prospectus staff starts discussing the coming agreement]
Derek Zumsteg: It appears that if the owners gave in right now, just said "sure, we'll take your last offer", they'd have won more in this negotiation than in any previous one since free agency. Why did the players move so far? Are they that afraid of the NLRB and implementation? Do they believe that if they give in this time, they'll be able to win it back in four years when it's apparent none of this did any good for competitive balance?

was Monday's annual Rule 5 draft. The major-league portion allows teams to
select players left off 40-man rosters for $50,000, with the caveat that
the player must be kept on the 25-man roster all season or be offered back
to his original team for $25,000. The minor-league portions work similarly,
but without the mandatory roster provision.

Rany Jazayerli: Civilization is ending as we know it, a plague of
locusts has hit the Midwest and the sun rose in the west this morning.
Read the full article... The BP crew discusses the implications of a rumored plan to redistribute baseball's teams.
About two weeks ago, the story broke that Major League Baseball was contemplating another round of realignment for the 2001 season. While the plan floated is subject to change, the primary adjustments would lead to a four-division, no-wild-card National League, and a three-division, wild-card American League. The two most recent expansion teams would switch leagues, and teams would be aligned in a time-zone-friendly manner. Read the full article...
