MLBPA vs OWNERíS

This should be interesting how this unfolds. You have players like Blake Snell, saying he’s not going to take a pay cut. Most importantly to me, is how are they going to work out all the variables involved with Covid-19 testing? Hopefully both parties come to a agreement.

If Blake Snell’s commentary was representative of the majority of players, I’d be happy to see them skip the season. But I expect cooler heads will prevail and they will work something out. However, the clock is ticking. If they can’t work it out in the next couple of weeks, I don’t see it happening.

A huge jerk. Let the union come out and say those things. And the other moron, Bryce Harper comes out, and agrees with him. I just canít imagine what will happen, if both sides canít agree. The public, elected officials, and social media, will roast them.

If they were guaranteed a full salary for this season (162 games), they would all be on board, including Blake Snail and Harper. At this point I’m used to not watching sports so if there is no season, so be it.

However, NFL must go on dammit.

True, Iím good if the baseball season is canceled. I never thought I would ever come to that conclusion.

I wouldn't take a pay cut either.

With that being said I desperately need some sports, even baseball.

Yes. Would love to see baseball this summer. However, if there’s going to be a fight over money. Marble racing, KBO, and UFC, will do for now, until the NFL season starts.

It’s June 1. Negotiations going nowhere fast. I’m ready for them to just cancel the 2020 MLB season.

They should. Kinda pointless for them to only play 2.5 months at best. Wonít feel like a season, though rather like a quick tournament. Again, as long as the NFL starts on time, Iíll take that trade off.
