Players union criticizes Blue Jays for not calling up Guerrero - Sportsnet.ca

Yesterday on MLB Now, Eno Sarris suggested an idea which could be workable related to service time. He suggested teams get a fixed amount of time for minor and major league service time. I believe he mentioned somewhere around 8 years, dependent on draft age. A more workable timeframe would probably be 10-11 years but I believe with more work, there could be something to the idea. The question is, though, what other compromises on both sides would be needed to get it done. In CBAs there is always give and take. What would each side be willing to concede? Would the players be willing to get rid of super two status and reduce arbitration to two years? Would the owners be willing to increase minimum pays for players operating under their first contacts (not free agents, you wouldn’t want to price them out) and, maybe, bump up AA and AAA pay?

Those are just a few thoughts. Any other ideas?

MLBPA hires Bruce Meyer as lead negotiator

The Major League Baseball Players Association has hired longtime sports law attorney and litigator Bruce Meyer as senior director of collective bargaining and legal.

Meyer will focus on negotiation and enforcement of the collective bargaining agreement and report to MLBPA executive director Tony Clark, who announced the hire Monday. Meyer has advised players’ unions in basketball, football and hockey, most recently working the past two years under former MLBPA executive director Don Fehr with the NHL Players’ Association.
