This season is providing some great moments for fans in Missouri. The Cardinals are vying for their third straight trip to the playoffs and Royals first baseman Mike Sweeney looks to become the first Royals to lead the majors in hitting since George Brett. That’s why many fans were relieved to hear that the Major League Baseball Players Association decided to wait on setting a strike date. The MLBPA believes enough progress has been made with the owners and are willing to wait and see what happens this week before taking further action. If they don’t believe things are moving in the right direction, the players will meet again Friday and decide on further action.
