Thursday, November 21, 2013 was a sad day for Major League Baseball as the Executive Director of the MLB Player’s Association Michael Weiner after his fifteen-month battle with brain cancer. Weiner held this position during the steroid era and worked to make the game clean once again.
Chicago Cubs prospects Jae-Hoon Ha (OF) and Marcus Hatley (RHP) may be subjected to being picked up by another team due to the Rule 5 Draft. Alex Rodriguez had another hearing in New York City and stormed out due to MLB Commissioner Bud Selig’s refusal to testify.
