The strike is long gone and so is the rhetoric from the owners about the poor small markets. They are more than holding their own on the field. the small- market Brewers are 6-2 and the big-market Chicago White Sox are 1-6. So what gives? Here's real winners and losers in the aftermath of baseball's longest labor dispute.Bud Selig -- win -- Bud ball, bargain ball, whatever it is it's working. Taking two of three from the nefarious Peter Angelos must have felt good.Jerry Reinsdorf -- lose -- Julio Franco's in Japan, no one's hitting behind Frank Thomas, so Jerry signs Chris Sabo?

Bobby Cox isn't normally a one-word answer guy. But he wasn't in a real expansive mood during this exchange last week. "How many rocking chairs are you going to get?" a reporter asked. "None," the Braves manager answered. They were speaking about Cox's transition from the dugout into retirement, which is expected to happen after the 2010 season. But for Cox and others in a distinguished group of 60-somethings, life after managing is a sensitive subject. Joe Torre, Tony La Russa, Lou Piniella, Jim Leyland, Cito Gaston and Cox have combined to manage 138 seasons, winning 11,216 games and 21 pennants.

CHICAGO -- The soap opera that is the Bulls seems never-ending and it keeps getting more interesting.Tim Floyd is in, Phil Jackson is not exactly out, and the ball is back in Michael Jordan's court.Those were the three key points to emerge from the United Center Thursday, where Bulls chairman Jerry Reinsdorf introduced Floyd as the team's new director of basketball operations. Reinsdorf made it clear that Floyd, who resigned as Iowa State's coach the day before, will eventually be the Bulls' next coach, as expected.

This isn't just any circus trip for the Bulls, it's the 10-year anniversary of their first after Michael Jordan left … when they went 0-7 … starting their five-year, 0-32 run. Of course, their last five were way better (9-24) showing they're on their way back. Of course, at this rate it may take a while. This is no go-for-broke organization, but which one in Chicago ever was? The town always has belonged to the owners, as fans picked up the pieces of their broken hearts and supported Phil Wrigley, William Wirtz, the McCaskeys and, uh, fans.

As the attention of the sporting world focuses on the Final Four, the microscope continues to zoom in on the coaches, who face a greater glare than ever before.And as CBS lead analyst Billy Packer notes, some, like Duke's Mike Krzyzewski and Maryland's Gary Williams, have had to take a pause from the pressure because they haven't managed their time well."You only have so many places that you can spread your time. All of us are in a position of time management, and this position requires time management far beyond anything even conceived five or six years ago," said Packer.

ROSEMONT, Ill. -- Major League Baseball had never seen the likes of this: a sitting commissioner with 15 months left in his term being asked to leave the office by owners of 18 of the 28 clubs who pay him an annual salary of $650,000 to rule their game.They didn't beat around the bush, those 18 owners. They told him, in no uncertain terms, that baseball "needs a strong leader" in these troubled times and that he wasn't it. They said they would not vote in favor of his re-election when his term expires.

CHICAGO -- With a wide smile yesterday, Michael Jordan picked up the NBA's Most Valuable Player award, the fourth of his career. And by the end of the summer, that smile might be even wider if Jordan, who becomes a free agent, is able to get the two-year contract he is seeking.Jordan very much would like to get from the Chicago Bulls a two-year deal worth $23 million a year -- a figure that would match his uniform number of 23. But he said he would settle for $18 million a year for two years from the Bulls, or even a bargain-basement $10 million less than that if he were to sign with another team.

STATE OF FLUX, Fla. -- That's the only proper dateline for Orioles spring training.Not Fort Lauderdale, where they are currently located. Not Orlando, where they failed to strike a deal with Disney. And certainly not Sarasota, where Chicago White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf controls the lease.Reinsdorf needs to pick a new tenant with the White Sox moving to Tucson, Ariz., next spring. Peter Angelos -- the Orioles' owner who took an anti-management stand during the strike -- apparently is not first on the hard-liner's list.

Hi, my name is Jerry Reinsdorf. I'm still a little sad, you know. Well, at least that's what I said. And what good is being an owner if you can't fib like the President? Or Pinocchio, for that matter?Truth is, Jan. 14, 1999, was Independence Day for the Chicago Bulls franchise. Thank goodness, we don't have to worry about that Jordan guy anymore.So much fame, so much power, so much money -- too much for one man! So many titles, so many contracts, so many rings to purchase -- too much for one owner!

Jerry Reinsdorf tried to ruin baseball, but couldn't.Now he might attack a far more treasured institution:His own Chicago Bulls.Reinsdorf said Sunday that he wants Michael Jordan back next season, but it was a hollow endorsement, knowing Jordan won't return without coach Phil Jackson."

Last winter, I received a nice letter from a fan asking if we might stop writing about money matters in baseball during the off-season, and write more about the game.Sounds great, but it's impossible. Everything done in the major leagues is predicated on money or lack thereof, and Albert Belle's $55 million contract will make all teams more diligent about how they spend their dollars. In this strange world created by former union leader Marvin Miller (who began the salary spiral) and Chicago White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf (who is responsible for signing Belle and altering baseball's salary structure dramatically)

Chicago Bulls guard Michael Jordan made his comeback somewhat complete on Sunday when he walked away with the Most Valuable Player Award at the All-Star game in San Antonio. Somewhat, because there's still this little business of determining Jordan's worth in the game.Jordan has, for years, been underpaid. He's making $4 million this season, which ranked 14th among the 24 all-stars in San Antonio. Jordan joins a banner crop of unrestricted free agents at the end of this season, and plans to let the Bulls make the first move.
