The OAKLAND TRIBUNE’s Monte Poole argues that Angels Owner Arturo Moreno “is in position to make a bigger impact” than NBA Charlotte expansion franchise Owner Robert Johnson, writing, “The NBA is star-driven, and most of the stars are black. It behooves the league to be proactive in this regard. … But Moreno is walking into a great game that sometimes resists the most implemental steps of evolution, often to its own detriment” (OAKLAND TRIBUNE).

The WASHINGTON TIMES’ Thom Loverro wrote of the Marlins having only one player on their 25-man roster signed beyond this season, “Owners, union officials, players, and agents alike are watching to see if Florida’s payroll experiment will show some measure of success.”  The Devil Rays, Royals and Expos “all have similar roster flexibility, but none of them appear to have adopted this stance as a way to build their rosters” (WASHINGTON TIMES).
