The new MLBPA chief negotiator that’s preparing for a possible battle with MLB

He was on a phone call, pacing the lobby of a Phoenix hotel, occasionally slipping his hand into a brown paper bag wedged under his elbow. He stopped, held out the bag and raised his eyebrows.

Worse still, he’s in a position where he reports to Tony Clark.
