  • The New Collective Bargaining Agreement
  • Four Teams Get New Stadiums (and the Royals Get a Rehabbed One)
  • The New National Television Agreement with Fox and Turner Sports
  • Fantasy Sports Company Wins First Round in Court

Add to this, Will Weiss has an essay on the environmental impact of more than 2,400 MLB games that are played every year.

Did I mention PECOTA ratings for every player, plus the Top 100 Prospects from Kevin Goldstein?

To add to our 2007 Arbitration Figures page, we have added an Arbitration Scorecard page.

With the first two rulings from arbitration hearings (Josh Paul and Joe Beimel), we will be tracking whether the owner or player was ruled in favor, what the total contract figure is, who the arbitrators were on the panels, and how this stacks up in the overall scorecard between owners and players historically. We also are providing last year's scorecard, and a PDF file showing Arbitration Results from 1974-2004.
