MLB lockout forces fantasy managers to play catch-up after flurry of signings, trades

  MLB lockout forces fantasy managers to play catch-up after flurry of signings, trades So much activity in such a small amount of time requires a scorecard to know who's up, who's down. We have you covered as fantasy draft day nears.The impasse left us without the free agent signings, trades and enticing news nuggets that help bridge the gap between one season and the next. Thankfully, the owners and the players were able to reach an agreement to preserve a 162-game season and restore at least a semblance of normalcy.

It was a day game at Citizens Bank Park on Saturday, but the Philadelphia Phillies didn't wear their cream-colored alternate uniforms, a tradition for home day games.

Instead, they wore the red-pinstripe uniform.

Phillies executive vice president Dave Buck said the blame lies with MLB uniform supplier Fanatics, the sports apparel and memorabilia behemoth.

"They weren’t able to deliver the uniforms in time," Buck said Sunday morning, via MLB.com. "It’s a shame because our fans really like them. But the supplier (Fanatics) is backed up and doing the best they can."

The legislation will be enacted two years after a man disguised as a Mountie and driving a replica RCMP cruiser killed 22 people in northern and central Nova Scotia. Nova Scotia Justice Minister Brad Johns issued a statement today saying the new law will help "prevent such tragic events from happening again." Starting May 12, the Police Identity Management Act will prohibit the use, possession, sale or reproduction of police-issued items by those other than police organizations.
