We have seen the Pirates position on the matter. We know that the league supports them. We know the players ass. has filed a grievence, and we know that Boras has stated the Pirates should come clean about the deal.

But where is Boras, and for that matter, where is Alverez? Why have they not been interviewed and explained their position better? If the have a good argument, they need to bring it forward in the court of public scrutiny. If they don't, they must not have a good case for their extra money.

I think if they're smart they'll stay quiet. They don't care about what the public thinks, they're just trying to get more money. And talking is only going to increase the chance that they say something that shows their claim to be invalid, which it most likely is.

Does anyone know the timeline for the grievance being heard? Is this going to take a couple days or a couple months?

Never mind. Looks like September 10.

So basically it comes down to the arbitration. If the grievance gets thrown out, Alvarez is on the restricted list, and then he really has no choice but to report.
