Looks like the MLBPA is striking back.
Recently, player photos disappeared off of Sportsline. So I got around to asking CBS what was up. Their response?
The players association will no longer allow us to use those pictures for the fantasy games.
Interesting that the cbs gamecenter application that shows play by play still has the pictures on it. So do the non-fantsy player pages. (go to the website and search for a player without logging in for fantasy.) But when you search a player after logging in for fantasy, the picture is gone.
I really don't care, but it does seem petty on MLBs part.
There are a few things with the New York Yankees that never change. That's pride, tradition, and most of all, we have the greatest fans in the world. -Derek Jeter, 9/21/08 -- last words from old Yankee Stadium
