FEHR PLAY IN DENVER'S STAPLETON AIRPORT
Published October 7, 1994
MLBPA Exec Dir Donald Fehr met with Rockies owner Jerry McMorris yesterday, "perhaps paving the way for the resumption of talks late next week." McMorris: "We didn't move on any of the substantive issues. We did talk about how to get the talks re- started. We'll talk again tomorrow and try to fix some schedules for the end of next week" (TORONTO STAR, 10/7). Peter Schmuck reports that Fehr and McMorris have met twice in the last two days, once Wednesday night and again Thursday morning. "The discussion covered a variety of topics, apparently including" Orioles owner Peter Angelos' revenue-sharing plan. One MLB source said that the owners took Angelos' plan "seriously enough to perform a computer analysis of it" (Baltimore SUN, 10/7). Meanwhile, in a letter to the union from management regarding its proposed 45-day freeze on player transactions, owners asked that rules preventing the clubs from "acting in concert be suspended during the freeze" (USA TODAY, 10/7). The union will hold internal discussions on whether to endorse the freeze or, "agree to suspend the anti-collusion language should the owners impose" (Claire Smith, N.Y. TIMES, 10/7).
