    There is one who refused to play with scab players after the 94 lockout who is still an owner.

    Either way, both parties are at fault. The owners could give more money to the players. Meanwhile, a portion of the country is without jobs and MLB players make quite a bit more money than some of them will see in a lifetime.

    Let's see, they have annual salaries but aren't being asked to put in their typical annual work.

    If you or I only worked half of the year and our employer had the audacity to not pay our full annual salary....who exactly is the entitled twat?

    And please, that whole 'owners should pay for their own stadiums' argument is old....it's not totally their stadium and in many cases they're paying a higher percentage than the overall use they're getting. Cities WANT use of them for other things...and are benefiting from ALL use.
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    That is a straw man. Maybe you aren't aware the Union and the Owners had agreed tentatively back in March to a prorated salary structure. The owners are trying to use public sentiment to stick it to the players. This is obviously brilliant chess by the owners because it seems to be working on everyone. The players official position (forget the knucklehead Blake Snell) is that they would play for a prorated salary. Half a season means half the pay. Most would be ok with that. Not what the owners are now asking for.

    Snell came off as entitled, a wannabe rapper, and completely dense.

    And it's hilarious he talked about the risk of 'the rona' as he called it, after two months ago saying 'if I get it, I get it'. Now it's an issue?

    Look, owners need to negotiate in good faith, and I agree. And I'm the first to call out that these players don't actually make the huge salaries we see, and that the majority of the MLB players don't make insane money. Snell's 2020 take home was going to be around $2.7-3M, now it'll be less than $2M.

    But at a time when healthcare workers are putting their lives at risk for $60K a year, he needs to STFU about 'getting his' and shut up and play.

    If his gripe was about the owners negotiation tactics, I would understand that better. But he just sounded greedy. Ready to sit at home and play the Show if he doesn't get what he wants (take his ball and go home).

    Great post. Agree with all of it, and you put into words what I've attempted to do quite a few times and just ended up giving up on it.

    The players are assuming all the risk so there should be some kind of added on incentive to play. I understand they are obligated by contract but these are different times and you're asking these players to put themselves and their families in danger for a game.

    Easy for the owners to do that considering they are not assuming any risk. Give the players something. Whether its money in escrow, a bigger piece of tv money, something.

    That said, Snell comes off looking like a douche.

    Essential workers getting paid close to minimum wage are also taking a risk, much more of one considering they are interacting with the public.
