Try to imagine a tweet like this coming out of the baseball world. The owners trusting the Commissioner to work with the players to put together the best plan, and then going along with whatever that is, because they know it's the best thing for the sport and player relations.

Baseball is coming back to Mexico on August 7. Because the league often features some stateside pros who are looking for opportunities, I wonder if this year - with no minor league season - there will be even more displaced minor leaguers trying to make a go of it.
RT @BNightengale: The end of a baseball institution with Foley's shutting its doors for good. Heartfelt message by owner Shaun Clancy, who made the place a fabulous baseball establishment where everyone felt at home. @FoleysNY will be tremendously missed, but never forgotten. https://t.co/h7E5kTy28k
