Vendors have to hustle for tips. They do not set the prices.
The players need the owners. The players are the draw, but the owners bring the capital, set up the infrastructure and assume risk.From time to time you hear talk of a players league but that's never going to get anywhere. Fans came to the see the players, but strong franchises have a brand that carries through the constant turnover of personnel.
This is essentially the same group, minus Marcell Ozuna. Given the contract commitments already made the franchise opted to hope for internal improvement. So if this team is to improve offensively, individuals like Matt Carpenter and Harrison Bader will have to perform better. Maybe Dylan Carlson or Brad Miller can add new life to the attack, but the core guys are the same.
13th round. Many teams whiffed. Tampa Bay had him in for a tryout and afterward their baseball stamped "Do Not Draft" on his profile. Oops!
Well, that's one vote for that.
I have no idea. But the guys hustling the beer up and down the aisle want the cash.
Can you imagine the cleaning protocol for Fredbird? What do you do, take him a car wash after every game?

One way or the other players need to start training next week to resume play in July. It's time to, you know, process those tacos or leave the bathroom.
So what are you going to do about it?
I assume the ballclub has final say on concession prices, but I have no information on the contract between the team and the operator.
That's a little extreme, because fans do connect to players. Go to a game and you will see a lot of fans wearing a Molina replica uniform. But, yes, the players do come and go.
There are no eternal ballplayers.
