Trying to make major changes to the game is what will cause this work stoppage to be drug out into the season. Baseball players should just be happy there is no cap and sign the deal.
    This. Think about the money being handed out this offseason. It's mind-boggling. MLB gives out the best pay in sports and the health risks are negligible compared to NHL or NFL.

    The NBA has bigger salaries per player.

    And they should! One player can dominate the game, and they have rosters of only 15 players. MLB on the other hand employs a small city worth of ppl if you include the minors.

    But yeah MLB contracts are silly imo. Yes itís a lot of games, but the health risks are so negligible. Most of baseballs injuries are self inflicted.

    Roster size is a huge difference. And obviously revenues vs the NHL. But 15 NBA players make more than $40 AAV. And two are even over $50.

    And they deserve even more.
