MLBPA Looking Into Collusion with Free Agents PDF Print E-mail

Free Agency, Trades, and Signings

Barry BondsThe MLB Player’s Association (MLBPA) is investigating whether collusion is occurring to keep some veteran free agents from being signed, including Barry Bonds.

The investigation has been occurring for several weeks and is looking into not only Bonds, but players such as Kenny Lofton, Mike Piazza, David Wells, Sammy Sosa, and Roger Clemens. As reported by Buster Olney of ESPN:

MLBPA general counsel Michael Weiner, when asked if they were near a resolution, said, "I really don't know. We're still waiting for some information."

If the MLBPA determines that there is something untoward, it could file a grievance on the issue of collusion at the end of the investigation.

"The union notified us that it was investigating potential collusion regarding Barry Bonds and asked for information, and we told them that there was absolutely no collusion with respect to Barry Bonds or any other free agent," said Dan Halem, MLB senior vice president and general labor counsel. "We are aware of no facts which would support a collusion claim regarding Bonds or any other free agents."

Bonds, who is now the all-time homerun leader, has not been offered a single offer, according to his agent, Jeff Borris. No team has made me an offer for any amount at any time since Barry became a free agent," Borris said.

Roger ClemensOne of the last moves as an MLB player by The Rocket may have happened today. Roger Clemens has said that he would like to join the Houston Astros as a consultant. Today, he filed for free agency.

This isn't to say that Clemens isn't interested in pitching this year. He is considering pitching for Team USA in the 2008 Olympics.

"I think, if things fell into place and he felt good, he would be interested," said agent Randy Hendricks about the 45-year-old Clemens, who has won 354 Major League games and pitched part of the 2007 season for the Yankees. "He loves the idea of representing his country."

Today (Friday), the following three (3) players filed for Free Agency pursuant to Article XX B (2) of the Basic Agreement.

To date, 146 players have filed for free agency (See filings from Nov. 1, Oct. 31, Oct. 30, Oct. 29 and Nov. 6)
