The Views From 314ft Podcast Episode 15: Craven

Matt and Derek join Matt to discuss the latest in the ongoing saga to start the 2020 MLB season. We begin by going over the latest news including Rob Manfred’s guarantee there will be a season and the player union’s social media campaign to back the owners into a corner. Then we discuss the very strained relationship between players and owners, the modern-day role of the commissioner, and we ponder if there will be a 2020 season. Unfortunately, we can’t get beyond talk about the business of baseball. Hopefully, one day soon we can talk about the games on the field that take place in a safe environment.

The Views From 314ft Podcast Episode 14: Why Is This So Difficult?

Matt and Derek join Randy to ask the question on everyone’s mind: why can’t Major League Baseball figure this thing out? We discuss the latest proposal from the league to the players, which was quickly rejected. All of this raises the question if we even want baseball back this year. The episode was recorded prior to the news of the new MLBPA proposal.
