Until I heard of his death yesterday, I hadn't thought much about Marvin Miller since the last players strike, and when I thought about him then I wondered if he would have handled that conflict differently than Donald Fehr had. I concluded that he would not have. He would have left me as angry about the situation as Fehr had.
Of course, the biggest work stoppages were yet to come, and Marvin Miller's influence fell on them all, both directly and indirectly. The players are indebted to Miller because of it. I'm not so sure about us fans.
RIP, Marvin Miller.
