What’s Rob Reading?

Citi Field, home of the New York Mets (COURTESY OF THE NEW YORK METS)

“This War Needs Some Ground Rules”
By Russell A. Carleton, Baseball Prospectus

“In the ongoing saga of the MLB labor negotiation, “sources” told the usual intrepid reporters that franchise owners had agreed in principle (though not in dollar amount) to the idea of a pre-arbitration bonus pool. The pool, which would be funded from “central revenue” (no indication of from where the pot of money would be drawn), would provide bonuses to a select group of pre-arbitration eligible players. There was some ambiguity in which players would receive bonuses, but it would likely be “the good ones” and “good” would be determined by WAR. Here we go again.”
