I just ran across this very interesting round table that Baseball Prospectus held as the strike was being settled. It's like deja vu all over again. I felt most of the same things. At the end of the dsicussion, each person offers his or her prediction of what we have coming. We'll just have to see about those. Unfortunately, at the end of this little near-crisis we are not left with those convenient movie blurps as to what happens to the caste of characters in the future (E.g., "Senator and Mrs. John Blutarsky").
