Going by that graph I would correlate it to the removal of the reserve clause.
But really, you're not attributing any major destruction of the sport to the 94 strike? It to me is the premier evidence that a players union cares nothing about the sport it's in and cares only about their immediate gains. Baseball's dominance and legacy were ruined and tarnished exclusively at the hands of the players union. The vast majority of that destruction was done by the hands of Donald Fehr. We need to learn from history here and not hide from it.
