Are you a conspiracy theorist? I am.

Joel Sherman in the Post:

1. Will the ball fly again?

There were 671 more homers hit last year than in any other season. Even MLB conceded something was up with the ball while declaring it was not by design. But if you were a conspiracy theorist, wouldn’t you expect the helium ball to be in play this year as a way to get eyes on games with long-ball pyrotechnics? If homers are hit at the same rate this year as last year, it would produce 2,511 of them if each team played its 60 games — or more than in the 1960 season; the last year with 16 teams and 154 games.

They are negotiating over things that are not covered by the CBA right now.  Not sure these types of things will be announced, but they will announce when they've agreed to matters that resolve negotiations over mandatory subjects of bargaining (i.e. wages, hours, and terms and conditions of employment) as defined by the National Labor Relations Act.  Delaying the season constitutes hours of work under the Act, so just the decision to delay the season had to be agreed to by the Union.  In light of the NBA situation involving player-to-player transmission, it makes sense for both parties to agree to a delay so that they can figure things out moving forward.

Agreed to a one-year deal for $625,000 yesterday.

When do players start getting their paychecks for this year? If the season is reduced by a month, are salaries reduced by a month?

CBS pushed him up to $29.

Another way of looking at it: the more categories there are, the harder it is to stand out from the pact.

For bidding purposes, the only significant difference between 4x4 and 5x5 is the price of closers. When Peter, Mike and I post our bids here, you'll see differences of opinion -- small differences, more often than not -- about where to stop bidding for all players who don't close; the fact that my bids are for 4x4 formats and theirs for 5x5 will be irrelevant.

I think Alex calls Strikeouts the great equalizer for pitchers.  Usually the top starters go down, along with the closers.  I think that didn't apply to Cole and Verlander last year b/c their Ks were just so damn high.  Runs do the same thing for hitters.  It's another category in which the spread is not that high between the competent and the best.  Sure, if you have enough guys who score 110 runs it matters a lot, but compared to all the runs scored among 168 hitters, it's not that much different from 75, which isn't that different from 40.

Pete's worth less in 5x5 because the dollars are redistributed to Nick Markakis and Adam Frazier.  It's not so much about Pete's runs versus league runs, but the addition of the new category.  In a similar fashion closers' earnings take a dramatic hit moving from 4x4 to 5x5 to pay starters for their IP or strikeouts.

My league may finally be moving from 4x4 to 5x5 this year.  That seems to be prompting some questions from me, one about Pete. Why is he worth less in 5x5 than 4x4, if he was so successful in the 5th category (Runs, 103)?

Only $27 for a 102 run, 120 RBI, 53 HR season ... now THAT's a high scoring environment!
