Well Jake, maybe if you and your ilk hadn't directed your chief negotiator to go for quality of life benefits last go around...

So very true. And maybe if they were worried about professional baseball players, not just MLB contracted players.

He thinks there is collusion? I really think the payroll tax hurts some players. Maybe owners are getting smarter on best ways to spend money. At what point do teams look at the Harpers and Machado's of the world and think 4 separate $75M total contracts worth of improvement or one of those guys?

I don't think he's saying collusion.

He's just pointing out the unequal distribution of revenue/how the owners are no longer overpaying for older players.

I think that he wants it one way. But it's the other way.

So owners are wising up and players are pissed.  

And Jake wants to rile up the same guys that he voted to put into slots.

Sorry, you are right I'm not sure how Jake voted.

The union he was a member of decided to lessen the payments players not yet in the Union could receive.

I asked Guthrie about it on Twitter.
