08:27 AM ET 11.19 | Along with the days to salvage a season, the numbers of those expecting a miracle are dwindling. Conversations with people in both the management and union ranks showed most were pessimistic even an abbreviated 2012-13 season could be saved and news that the union and management will try to restart the negotiations provided only a slight lift to the sour feelings. As one governor put it, the only reason to feel even a slight sense of optimism is the fact they are talking again. The vast difference between the league and the union remains. ... [There] are also differences in contract rights, such as free agency, contract lengths and limits to annual salary increases. The players also want to receive the full value of their existing contracts.

They all deserve the full value of the Louisville Slugger I keep under the bed hitting them in the face.

I'd use it to conduct a colonoscopy on the Poison Dwarf and the Fehrer before breaking it over their thick skulls.
