couple of thoughts on the Major League Players strike now in its third day or fans who say the players are excessively greedy and spoiled think with their hearts instead of their theyre just hypocritical If someones willing to pay million a year why shouldnt the players ask for it You would I would Id ask for million a Harrier jet a years sup ply of Blue Bells Natural Vanilla Bean and a chance to do a nude scene with Michelle Pfeiffer if I thought someone would give it to me Which they might If youre searching for the root of base balls current financial situation look up a former Los Angeles Dodgers lefthander named Andy Messersmith the father of free agency Michael Condiff On Dec arbitrator Peter Seitz ruled that as all Major League offer his services to any club in the league after playing for one year under a renewed contract The decision emancipated the players who previously had led the lives of indentured servants although generally wellpaid ones Before the case clubs had the power to uni laterally renew player contracts yearafter year thereby essentially reserving their tal ents for as long as the club wished In his book Inside the Strike Houston lawyer and player agent Randal Hendricks likens the clubs preMessersmith posture to that of the Soviet Union in Cold Wartimes In both Hendricks writes the cit izens players could not freely exit reenter or move within the He added I found it outrage that the United States of America would follow and support that Soviet model in the sports Interesting analogy This thing could last a long time Owners say 19 Major League clubs are losing money and that without a salary cap the financial wells will eventually dry up for smallermarket clubs like San Diego and Milwaukee Theyre holding up the Padres recent threeyear talent firesale which included the likes of Fred McGriff and Roberto Alomar as an example of an organi zation that simply cant afford to keep its best players The Major League players meanwhile have heard salarycap sob stories from their National Football League counterparts who agreed to one a year ago and are stuck with it until the year and arent about to make what they perceive to be the same mistake The NFLs cap has resulted in reduced salaries for many players especially mid range veterans The stars and prospects are still earning large sums but those inbetween have suffered The almosteducated hunch here is that if the strike lasts beyond the second week in September there will be no playoffs no World Series possibly no spring training come February For now there is public pressure to retch an agreement quickly and salvage whats left of the seasoa But if the season dies John Q P will simply turn his attention to football and hockey and basketball and leave base balls opposite sides embroiled in a staring match over a long cold winter With the exception of Deon Sanders wholl be returning kicks in the NFL by mid October Betonit Nobody asked but heres a vote for the players returning to work finishing this sea son in which Tony Gwynn could hit 400 and Matt Williams could break the home run record and the Rangers could win the World Series despite a losing then giving the owners a great big seeya Let the fans relish in pennant races this fall and then disappear but please none of this seasonus interruptus It leaves everyone unsatisfied Michael Condiff is the Sports Editor of the New Braunfels Unicorns dominate at S A Lee HeraldZeitung photo by JOHN HUSETH Canyon s Kim Brunette skies for a In the Cougarattos scrimmage with Converse Judson on Friday CHS played host to ttw fourteam which also Involved Round Rock and Marshall The Cougarettes also scrimmaged at Austin Bowie on Saturday By MICHAEL CONDIFF Sports Editor Everything New Braunfels High School yarsily volleyball coach Claudia Perry saw Saturday she liked The Unicorns dominated a fourteam scrimmage at San Antonio Lee as they continued preparations for Thursdays 1994 season opener against Kerrville Tivy We had terrific team effort and per formance Perry said No official score was kept but of course we kept it ourselves and we scored significantly more than our opponents did It was a very dominant Perry said the Unicorns excelled hi all areas against Lee Holmes and Edison high schools I was really excited about the aggres siveness of our offense we really attacked the Perry said We worked a lot on communication The defense was it was just a great team Perry said the Unicorns showed more balance on the court than the team has enjoyed in recent seasons We took 10 girls down there and they all played and found a way to con she said Everyone was out standing I couldnt see any New Braunfels will scrimmage again Monday at San Antonio Churchill SA MacArthur will also be involved in the session Churchill is supposed to be really loaded with talent this Perry said Theyre always a state tournament con tender but this year theyre supposed to have a lot of experienced
