MLB labor deal done

MLB players, owners announce five-year labor deal
Baseball players and owners proclaimed an unprecedented era of labor peace, finalizing a new five-year collective bargaining agreement Tuesday night. The deal makes relatively minor changes to the previous agreement, and doesn't alter baseball's drug rules.

As Peter Gammons puts it: "There is little that is earth-shattering about the deal except that it was accomplished so discreetly, without threats or cries of poverty, press conferences or games missed. That's because the baseball business is awash in cash."

Cardinals win Game 3, lead Series 2-1

Posted at 10:38 PM on October 24, 2006 by Ben Tesch

Is this series all about pitching gems? Chris Carpenter goes 8 innings, giving up only 3 hits and getting 6 strikeouts. Jim Edmonds' two-run double and Joel Zumaya's two-run error were both huge, particularly since Zumaya's play was potentially an easy double play. Good news for Cardinals fans: Soups on tomorrow night. Bad news for America: no free tacos!

Will the Cards win it while they're in St Louis? Will the Series get back to Detroit, and can Detroit still win it?
