There was no provision in the new collective bargaining agreement that requires MLB team mascots to wear pants. So Clark can continue to go au naturel from the waist down.

Also, Jon Lester has already expressed his disappointment that the CBA will not exempt pitchers from having to throw to first.

On the subject of a 26th roster spot, I’m disappointed for the 30 minor leaguers who won’t have major league jobs because roster sizes didn’t change. I’m happy for myself in that managers aren’t going to have another reliever to go to mid-inning.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster.
