One Voice--Great Article about the lockout from ex-MLB player John Kruk

Read the bottom half of the article.

"When the head of the MLBPA, Donald Fehr, went on TV back then and said, "The players voted to strike," you would think he meant that all the players on all the major league teams cast a ballot and decided that this was the thing to do.

Wrong.

Donald Fehr knows what the players want ... at least he thinks he does.
I can't speak for everyone in the league back then, but I know I never voted. And it wasn't that I missed the deadline. I was never asked to vote. I went back to West Virginia when the strike started. Our player rep, Darren Daulton, updated me about once a month; and that was it."
