Join Steve Lenox and guest co-host Nick Waddell as they discuss the goings on in Major and Minor League Baseball. This week's guests are Doug Gladstone and Kristi Dosh. Gladstone is the author of "A Bitter Cup of Coffee; How MLB & The Players Association Threw 874 Retirees A Curve." With a foreword written by the Emmy Award-winning broadcast journalist, Dave Marash, "A Bitter Cup of Coffee" tells the true story of a group of former big-league ballplayers denied pensions as a result of the failure of both the league and the union to retroactively amend the vesting requirement change that granted instant pension eligibility to ballplayers in 1980. Dosh is an attorney and the author of "Can Money Still Buy the Postseason in Major League Baseball?: a 10-year Retrospective on Revenue Sharing and the Luxury Tax," and is currently finishing a book with the working title of “Balancing Baseball: How Collective Bargaining Has Changed the Major Leagues,” which will be published by McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers in early 2011. The book breaks down those provisions of the collective bargaining agreement which have impacted competitive balance in baseball and explores their history, progression and future.
