Union files a K-Rod grievance

10 Comments

It was promised and expected and last night it happened: the Players’ Association filed a grievance against the Mets over him being placed on the disqualified list and for deeming his contract non-guaranteed.

You’ve heard me go on and on about this so I won’t bore you with that again. But how telling is it that the Daily News — and several other papers reporting on this — all run immediately to the “will the Mets buy out K-Rod’s contract next year or try to trade him?” analysis.  I think it’s safe to say that absolutely no one buys the notion that the Mets are going to prevail on their non-guaranteed contract gambit.
