Bizball Radio with Seth Everett and Maury Brown

Welcome to the latest edition of Bizball Radio!

A new labor agreement will be announced before Thanksgiving – likely on Tuesday – and with it, the league will see significant changes. Seth and Maury talk about how the sale of the Astros to Jim Cane that triggers the balancing out of the leagues and interleague everyday isn’t exactly the best for competitive balance and fan interest in interleague. As part of the discussion, both Seth and Maury agree that this new model of 15 teams each with daily interleague isn’t the best model. Maury wonders is MLB will consider ways to even out the leagues at even numbers and looks at the options of expansion and contraction, especially in light of possible movement on the issue of the Oakland A’s. There’s also the topic of a Luxury Tax and compensation as part of the new amateur draft process, blood-testing for hGH, revenue-sharing, and more.
