MLB owners refuse to make concessions as the number of cancellations approaches

Major League Baseball continues to break away from the cliff, and no one seems interested in directing it to safety. On Sunday we got another day of negotiations and another day of execution very little.

On Sunday, players presented MLB with a new offer, and the league’s owners, led by Commissioner Rob Manfred, essentially turned it down. MLB then moved on to its classic position of “players actually made the worst offer” when we all know that’s not true.

Kaplin, in fact, says, “Although we didn’t move to the players at all, we hoped they would come to us again so we could get whatever we wanted.” Players have so far advanced a lot in negotiations, giving owners an expanded playoff, advertising on uniforms and maintaining the same time limits before a free agency. All players are asking for is a raise in the minimum wage, a larger pool of pre-arbitration bonuses and a change in the luxury tax threshold to encourage spending.

Basically, players want younger players with a minimum wage to get more money and encourage more spending overall. None of this is crazy to ask. And the owners refuse to move.
