Stud Gerbil: good timing, guys.   reminder that it's on the owners.   it's always on the owners.


90%.

The players get some blame because they could very easily work some negotiations which provide more to Minor League players at the slight sacrifice of big individual salaries if nothing else. Baseball in the USA needs the minors, the local teams, and both owners and players have ignored that.

It's not like the NFLPA which sold out the rookies several years ago during their CBA, as at least baseball *does* have decent contracts for the little guys at the MLB level. But you gotta spend more on the up and comers.

ClavellBCMI: The owners will *not* agree to any new player contracts... until/unless the MLBPA knuckles under and gives the owners what they want.


all players subject to arbitration until their 36th birthday.
