Fire Rob Manfred. Get that old geezer out of the front office, clear house and lets get a season underway. What a clown that man is, just last week he said he was 100% sure we would have a season. Well guess who looks like an idiot now? Yep, you guessed it! Rob Manfred.
“I’m not confident. I think there’s real risk; and as long as there’s no dialogue, that real risk is gonna continue,” Manfred said when asked if he was confident there would be a season.
“It’s just a disaster for our game, absolutely no question about it. It shouldn’t be happening, and it’s important that we find a way to get past it and get the game back on the field for the benefit of our fans,” he said.
Manfred said the MLBPA’s “decision to end good-faith negotiations” and the need for an agreement with the union on health-and-safety protocols “were really negative in terms of our efforts.”
“The owners are a hundred percent committed to getting baseball back on the field,” Manfred said. “Unfortunately, I can’t tell you that I’m a hundred percent certain that’s gonna happen.”
An MLB Lockout is coming so we may as well get ready for no baseball. This summer at the very least we’ll have the NHL and NBA to lead us in to the fall for the NFL season. R.I.P MLB, 1869-2020.
