Broshuis: Beware MLB, NCAA Joint Venture

Garrett Broshuis -

Bud Selig may not have the cunning of Odysseus, but he and his braintrust are not idiots. Baseball's commissioner is entrusted to act "in the best interests of baseball," which really means acting in the best interests of baseball's owners. As a former player and current advocate of minor league players' rights, you can understand my trepidation upon hearing the announcement that MLB is interested in somehow "partnering" with the NCAA to sponsor more college baseball scholarships.

Scout’s Diary: I’m Here To Work

a pro scout -

This diary is about the life of a scout, not about what that scout sees or the inner-workings of what he does. That stuff is pretty much classified, unfortunately. A version of that stuff can be found elsewhere these days pretty easily. In fact, you can find it on this same site. If you're looking for a scout's take or evaluation on players this diary is not for you. But if you want to get a feel for what one professional scout's life is like, at or away from the ballpark, then this is the place for you. I hope you enjoy it.
