Major League Baseball negotiations continue

Almost a week after owners finalized a proposal that would begin the 2020 Major League Baseball season in the beginning of July, there is still no contract. The players’ association has been firm in its refusal to agree to a 50-50 revenue split and a shortened season. Cracks are beginning to appear. Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Blake Snell said Wednesday that less pay wasn’t worth it, especially with the threat of contracting COVID-19. One of the most important players in the National League, MVP winner Matt Carpenter from the St. Louis Cardinals, tweeted about his love for the game that same day.


 


MLBPA Executive Director Tony Clark says the 50-50 proposal is too close to a salary cap, something baseball does not have.
