  1. Patty Mills declined his $6.2 million dollar option with the Nets. He still might return to the team Bobby Portis declined his option ($4.6 million) with the Bucks but he will be staying their as Milwaukee has his early Bird rights and will pay him a lot more than he was making (at least $40 million over 4 years and up to $49 million)
  2. ESPN has a big suck up piece about Rob Manfred The title is "he doesn't hate baseball. He wants to save it!" so you know where this is headed. OH YOU ARE SO MISUNDERSTOOD ROB!!! https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/34130915/hate-baseball-wants-save-it That being said, a few things from it He basically is following Theo Epstein's manifesto from a few years ago on how to improve the game. Pitch clock is pretty much certain for next season Goal is to have Robo-umps in some form in 2024 Expansion to 32 teams is one Manfred's top goals Manfred doesn't seem keen to reinstate Pete Rose, however, he claims he would have a face to face meeting with Rose to allow him to plead his case if he (Rose) wanted one Raul Ibanez works for the commissioner's office as senior vice president of on-field operations In probably the biggest lie in the piece, Manfred claims that MLB is working to phase "blackout clauses" out of TV deals There are also a lot of details in regards to handle of various contentious issues including the most recent strike where Manfred showed he is an old man who doesn't understand the world of social media now
