Congress sent MLB a letter condemning the plan to cut 40+ teams. If they were to make noise about reconsidering MLB's anti-trust exemption, that could convince MLB to change course.

Does MLB really care that much about the exemption?  What is it buying them?  No other sport has one, and they seem to get along okay.

to me, MLB is a bit on the arrogant side, they want what they want, and they really do not care what others think or say, even congress condemning, probably didnt raise any concerns with them.

Oh, I think it can still come in handy at times.   It doesn’t really help in labor negotiations any more, but it probably keeps them out of some lawsuits by parties that MLB or the teams have contractual relationships with.    For example:  https://ballparkdigest.com/2018/06/12/supreme-court-yet-again-declines-to-strike-down-mlb-antitrust-exemption/
