I just keep thinking about and lamenting how the three most outspoken MLB players were Bryce Harper, Blake Snell and Trevor Bauer.
You could not have possibly picked a more douchey bunch of bros in baseball, and their comments have aged so poorly over the past few weeks. I think there's almost an expectation amongst pro athletes that the fans will get behind them whenever it comes to player pay vs. the owners. For my age and demographic, I can say this is definitely the case. When I read the reactions of other online MLB communities, which largely make up a much younger crowd than the Hangout, they were ready to grant Sainthood to Blake Snell and Trevor Bauer. It all just makes me so depressed.
I wont kick Dan for Fowler that wasnt his muck up.
Angelos the lawyer does not like opt outs, if they perform poorly or get hurt, they dont give money back. Personally, I can see his reasoning.
With that said, everybody in baseball is using them these days, and finally even the Orioles have caved.
