Default Petty and Gutless, Typical...

Kudos to JR for chastising the other owners over this.

Amazing...

Cheap JR strikes again!

Want to bet that the small-market owner mentioned is Loria?

I'm thinking Kansas City. Aren't they owned by the Wal-mart family?

No, they're owned by David Glass, former CEO of Walmart, but not a member of the Walton family.

Could be Phil Crane, who heavily leveraged his sale of the Astros and when asked if the Astros could add to payroll, he said, ďIt doesnít bother me that people want us to spend more money, But itís not their money. This is a private company, even though itís got a public flair to it. If they want to write a check for 10 million bucks, they can give me a call.Ē

There is nothing wrong with abolishing the outdated pension plan if the owners offer individual 401k investment plans. Give the employee the money now and the choice where to invest. Pensions are a thing of the past for retirement investment, except for government based jobs, private unions and the teachers unions.

I have a feeling Jerry is doing pretty well managing the Sox pension plan and doesn't want to go to the individual 401 k for money reasons that he doesn't like.

Irish:

You're assuming the owners will offer that. Sounds like from the story some of these p***** don't even want to do that for their employees.
