Last quote by Rob Manfred

We still have two groups involved in the process. Timing is one of the things that both the buyer and the seller are working through, so it's just impossible to say at this point, and I don't want to get into really what the issues are. The only reason I commented on this at all is there had been so much out there that really (is) not quite accurate. We feel that we'll continue to get outstanding coverage of baseball on ESPN. Those conversations have been productive, and when we come to a definitive timeline, believe me, we'll let you know.feedback

Rob Manfred quotes

Unfortunately it now appears that there really won't be any meaningful change for the 2017 season due to a lack of cooperation from the MLBPA. I've tried to be clear that our game is fundamentally sound, that it does not need to be fixed as some people have suggested, and I think last season was the kind of demonstration of the potential of our league to captivate the nation and of the game's unique place in American culture. I believe it's a mistake to stick our head in the sand and ignore the fact that our game has changed and continues to change.feedback

Two years ago we negotiated pace of play protocols that had an immediate and positive impact. Last year we took a step backward in some ways, and this offseason we've been in regular contact with MLB and with our members to get a better handle on why that happened. I would be surprised if those discussions with MLB don't continue, notwithstanding today's comments about implementation. As I've said, fundamental changes to the game are going to be an uphill battle, but the lines of communication should remain open.feedback

I don't think that the presence of legalized gambling in Las Vegas should necessarily disqualify that market as a potential major league city.feedback

I have great respect for the labor relations process, and I have a pretty good track record for getting things done with the MLBPA. I have to admit, however, that I am disappointed that we could not even get the MLBPA to agree to modest rule changes like limits on trips to the mound that have little effect on the competitive character of the game. There's a variety of changes that can be undertaken. I'm committed to the idea that we have a set of proposals out there and we continue to discuss those proposals in private.feedback

We did review some rule changes largely related to pace of game that are being discussed with the players' association. More to follow when those negotiations are complete. Obviously our foremost concern is that players that are under contract with our organizations be able to come and go. As of right now the countries that have been mostly affected are not places where we have players. I am pleased with the level of cooperation we've had from the teams.feedback

Pace of play is an issue that 'we' need to be focused on. The 'we' there is players, owners, umpires, everyone who is invested in this game.feedback

Given the really serious big economic issues on the table, I think it's unrealistic to think that you're going to get an agreement (regarding pace of play) when you're doing the overall agreement. As is the usual course in the offseason, we're turning to the playing rule issues now.feedback

Although Mr. Correa's conduct was not authorized by the Cardinals, as a matter of MLB policy, I am holding the Cardinals responsible for his conduct. A club suffers material harm when an employee of another club illegally accesses its confidential and propriety information, particularly intrusions of the nature and scope present here. In addition, as a result of Mr. Correa's conduct, the Astros suffered substantial negative publicity and had to endure the time, expense and distraction of both a lengthy government investigation and an MLB investigation.feedback

Last year's World Series was a great illustration of the rich baseball history in Cleveland. We are delighted that the 2019 All-Star Game will be in Cleveland with the Indians' loyal fans during an exciting time for the franchise. Major League Baseball looks forward to bringing 90th Midsummer Classic to downtown Cleveland in 2019 to celebrate the best of our sport.feedback

Today is a very sad day for our entire game and particularly for the many loyal fans in the Dominican Republic, the home of both Yordano Ventura and Andy Marte.feedback

Maybe we were going too far, too fast.feedback

We kept the game on the field. We made an agreement within our current structure which I think shows that we have a durable structure. We moved some things our direction, and we moved some other things their direction.feedback

We thought we were going to make an agreement, had a tentative agreement. ... but nothing's done until it's done.feedback

His commitment to the many communities that have touched his life and the great impact of these efforts makes him a very deserving recipient of our most prestigious award.feedback
