Rob Manfred quotes
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Maybe we were going too far, too fast.
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.
We thought we were going to make an agreement, had a tentative agreement. ... but nothing's done until it's done.
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.
I don't believe we are there yet.
