Because I am a believer in fair labor relations and oppose unfair labor practices when I see them.

Whatever helps you to enjoy the game. I believe about 98% of American workers have it worse than baseball players, but I guess they need someone to stick up for them.

So I assume you will be boycotting all baseball until all the employees are unionized?

There are no unions allowed in Texas…well, actually 9th least unionized in the US.

“Texas' status as a “right-to-work” state means union membership isn't compulsory — not illegal. That said, Texas is one of only a handful of states that denies collective bargaining to public employees. So our employment contracts generally are dictated to us by our local school boards.“

I think you are a little bit low on that 98% figure.

Look up MLB revenue and you see how the owners are taking advantage. Salaries are down while revenue went up strongly since 2019.

I can’t wait for this to end and for the transaction avalanche to begin.

This…doesn’t seem true? Something slightly odd happened in the year after 2019 that is important for revenue.

I think it just means compare 2019 and 2021, not comparing 2019 through 2021.

I think 2021 was still down. Lots of teams had attendance restrictions early in the year, including the White Sox. There is probably an expectation that 2022 returns to the pre-COVID revenue trend (assuming an agreement happens and no games are lost).
