There are plenty of uncertainties in our current time, with a good chunk of us trying to figure out where our next paycheck will be coming from. Though the amounts are bigger, that can also be said about Major League Baseball, particularly with its players. Part of this whole ordeal has been that the league and players were thought to have had a deal previously. Back in March, it was reported that they had reached a deal.
The players would get x amount of dollars- in the region of $170 million- in the event that the season did not take place but no more. If it was played, then they would keep that money and also supposedly get a pro-rated salary. However, it now looks like the owners could be balking at that, and might be considering asking for even more due to the fact that no fans will be present- surely- when the return is made. As such, the players are feeling slighted because of the prior agreement they thought they had. While many won’t feel sorry for them, it’s also hard to argue that it would be plain wrong. A season with no fans at the gates does not necessarily mean MLB will lose money, either. It just won’t be as wildly successful as previous seasons.
