Peace in Our Time

Neville Chamberlain, sans umbrella

Major League Baseball has a new labor agreement thro December 2016. As part of the deal, players will be tested for Human Growth Hormone and the minimum salary will approach half-a-million dollars a year. There will be no NBA-style season-disruptions at least to 2017 and no postseason swoon. In fact, as reported the Houston Astros will jump to the American League in 2013 (logging plenty of Frequent Flyer Miles as a Western Division ball club) and perhaps as early as the coming season a new Wild Card will be added to each league. Although I (Evander) have already registered my cranky complaint of the addition to the so-called postseason, I applaud Baseball for getting its act together, in a levelheaded manner, with labor peace in these times of borderline-receding economies.
