Interesting story by @BillShaikin on what minor league baseball players are doing to stay in shape:
I’m outraged, @MLB . Threatening to walk away from the entire minor league system is the exact opposite of negotiating in good faith.
@MLB is proposing to cut 42 Minor League Baseball clubs. This has nothing to do with what's good for baseball and everything to do with greed. It would destroy thousands of jobs and devastate local economies. I'm urging @MLB Commissioner Manfred to stop this proposal.
As part of a new agreement on opioids being negotiated between Major League Baseball and the players’ union, MLB will remove marijuana from the list of banned substances for minor leaguers, sources tell The Athletic. Major leaguers have not been subject to testing for marijuana.
