Milwaukee Brewers players could play more games and keep more of their money if MLB owners approve a counterproposal by the players' association.
Reported by ESPN's Jeff Passan, the MLBPA proposal includes a 114 game season that would conclude on Halloween before kicking off the playoffs in November. By playing more games, the players hope to stave off more cuts to their salaries, which have already been cut in half thanks to previous negotiations. Players that are high-risk themselves or have immediate family members could opt out of the season with no penalties and expanded playoffs are just some of the other suggestions in the proposal. The owners have proposed additional pay cuts and an 82-game season as both sides hope to get the season restarted in July.
