Oh I was just pointing out the David price opting out was a benefit for the owners. I guess everybody already knew that. But I think when all is said and done the less expensive guys are going to play. The pre-arbitration guys are going to play, and the-comparatively-old guys on league minimum contracts are going to play, but I would imagine that a large number of high dollar guys aren’t. I still have my doubts about whether we will play, but we shall see
Oh yeah, we've known that all along. That's why the owners wanted to make the season as short as possible. The networks pay most of their national TV money so they can have the postseason rights. Short season and a postseason, or no season at all, is best for the owners and has been all along.
I just didn't get the connection you seemed to be making to a discussion of a small # of players opting out or not.
Because if we play, there will be, (at least I think that’s the plan now) no fans in the seats, which means the only revenue the team owners will be getting will be whatever advertising revenue they get. They won’t get any ticket sales, merchandise sales, concession sales, parking fees, etc. etc. etc. and given how much money some players make, owners would probably be better off if there were no baseball at all.
