Barry Bonds’ former agent says MLB owners are colluding against players to suppress salaries

Major League Baseball’s owners are colluding against the sport’s players, long-time agent Jeff Borris charged when he joined The Jonah Keri Podcast.

“When you look at the revenues coming into the game ... it broke an all-time record and over $10 billion, the cost of labor should hand-in-hand go up as well,” said Borris, who’s represented the likes of Barry Bonds, Mike Piazza, and Rickey Henderson, and currently serves as general council for Ballengee Group.

“When that doesn’t happen, I think that is an indication of a tremendous collusive effort on behalf of the owners to suppress salaries for the players.”

USA TODAY survey: MLB power shift has managers’ salaries in free fall

CHICAGO — Joe Maddon helped lead the Chicago Cubs to the Holy Grail of sports, with a consistent level of success they haven’t seen in a century, but there are whispers his job could be in jeopardy if they don’t play deep into October.

Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch and Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, who led their teams to the World Series a year ago, have contracts that expire after this season.

Interim managers Mike Shildt and Jim Riggleman, who have done marvelous jobs since taking over the St. Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds, have no idea whether their gigs will be prolonged or have a September expiration date.
