Great post by The Outside Corner on the Kris Bryant and Maikel Franco Service Time Grievances.
It started on Sunday with the news trickling out that Jonathan Papelbon had filed a grievance against the Nationals for his suspension following the September dugout fight with Bryce Harper. It continued on Monday when it was reported that Kris Bryant of the Cubs and Maikel Franco of the Phillies filed grievances against their respective teams due to their teams keeping them in the minor leagues to delay future free agency. The type of grievances could not be more different, but are both meaningful in their own ways.
It's about time Major League Baseball fixed this problem.  The game is getting younger, and fans want to see these new stars as soon as possible.  Closing the gap between the draft and an MLB debut can only be good for baseball.
