The Major League Baseball Players Association expects to counter MLB’s economic proposal by the end of this week. This plan is supposedly going to include more than 100 games and a guarantee of full prorated salaries for the 2020 season, sources told ESPN.
The disagreement over the economic proposal has players absolutely outraged. Washington Nationals Max Scherzer one of the 8 members of the MLBPA power’s executive subcommittee was one of them. He went to social media to express his displeasure late last night.
Like WTF!!! I don’t blame these players whatsoever for being pissed off. They already had to take a pay cut, now the GREEDY owners of the MLB want them to take another and split revenue. There is just absolutely no shot as an MLB player would I put my family and my health on the line for a salary cut. For the owners to even ask of them to take as big of a cut they are is asinine.
MLB top beat writers are still confident there will be baseball in July, but the way I see it both sides are no where close to agreeing to any proposal. This may drag out further than anyone figured it would due to the money hungry owners.
