MLB makes new proposal- Union demands start date and terms by Monday

Recommended Posts

My guess is they’ll work something out, but I’m not going to hold my breath about it.    Wake me up when they’ve reached agreement.

I have to admit, I was completely hopeless before. Up thru very recently. Both sides seemed to be setting their position in stone for a true work stoppage, whether strike or lockout, or just never getting around to an agreement this year. Loggerheads.

I have some hope again today.

Here's hoping it happens.  But the players are a bunch of whiny self entitled bitches.  We'll see.  

If the players don't play they are going to look at a fall of no major free agent signings.  Then in 2022  there might be a work stoppage.   

At this point I don't care.  Let them cancel their season.  I have Hockey playoffs to look forward to. And I can stream those without a cable package.   Watching a never ending carousel of random waiver claims starting for the Orioles doesn't sound very appealing anyway. 

Can anyone name the Orioles starting five?  Can Hyde?  Can he name even 3 of them?

If they really wanted to settle this they would just meet  somewhere and stay together to they hash this out.  They could have a zoom session if they are scared of getting covid or meet outside in one of the empty stadiums.  Whatever this silly back and forth every 4 days or so where they announce their reactions to the press instead of the other side is not making progress.  I do hope the season is cancelled because it is our best chance of ending up with a salary cap if the players start hurting they might be more likely to agree to one in the next agreeement.

One interesting thing about the proposal is that if less than 81 games are played that MLB can use something other than this years standings to determine next year's draft order.

And now the latest players counterproposal is in:  89 games, full pro rated salary.

Does not seem to be progress to me.

Ya I don’t think it is. No one is willing to make a concession. MLB will not concede full prorated pay and mlbpa will not accept anything less it seems. AND they just proposed a longer season than the proposal before.

And Jon Heyman reports that his "ownership source" (didn't know he had one?) says:   "We're nowhere".

Has anyone seen a decent economic analysis of the expected revenue and non-player costs in MLB this year, assuming games in smaller stadiums with no fans present?     It seems logical to me, at first blush, that revenues will be down by more than the proportionate number of games played.    In other words, half a season results in less than half the total revenue.   But I really don’t know, because a lot depends on how the TV revenues are affected.

I think that’s a good hypothesis. I’d say the owners may have to think of this as a multi round game, though. Let’s hypothetically  say the owners are better off in 2020 not playing games than the prorated option. They would still need to consider the impact of not playing 2020 on 2021 and beyond.

    • Yep, same thing when folks call a mid to late first round pick a bust because they are merely a ML player and not a really good ML player.
    • I think generally people tend to overestimate the number of players that a good farm system typically produces over a given period of time.   Let’s define a 50 as a guy who produces 10 WAR in the 6+ years he’s under team control.    In 2013, 200+ players debuted, but only 33 met that standard.    So basically, an average of one per team per year.   
    • As a kid of the 1970's, my hatred of the Yankees is well ingrained by now.  I happily vote WS where the Skanks lost pretty high.  Not higher than those our Orioles won, perhaps, but no Yankee win would occur before either of those two criteria are met.  And then there is every other team in the league to consider ahead of any NY win.  I don't think a Yankee win would even occur in my list... Sadly, it looks like Scott Van Pelt only had one measly vote.
    • It was 2nd division starter or utility guy, right? And with a 50 ceiling. That's a ML player who, best case, is a good starter on a good team or likely is still a guy with some value to a ML team. Especially if he can hold his own in the outfield. My take here is that: 1) Tony's understandably being conservative in general on this list because he hasn't seen a lot of these guys for a full year. 2) He's going by what he's heard. 3) There are guys lower on this list that are a bit farther away but who have higher potential. 4) Vavra, based on Tony and rankings from other sites with some credibility, has some potential to be a real contributor to the ML team within 2 years. I actually think Tony's grade is pretty accurate based on the feedback, but whether he should be ranked over Baumler, Mayo, Rom, Smith, Hall, Wells, Bradish, Stowers, Hernaiz, Haskin and others is up for debate and, ultimately, not really important. Heck, at least one site has him at 7. They must think he's decent. All those guys have risk and they all have had a big layoff from baseball, or at least from being seen. Vavra got put here because he's closer, he has produced on the field, and thus has somewhat lower risk, is my guess.
