Players opting out of 2020 season

I agree if he sat out, but I was referring to this year. The Os save money based on fewer games as they do with all players based on the pro data agreement. But I believe the deferred money is paid in full. THAT is the part I am still looking To verify. Thanks for adding insight. 

The money is deferred from specific seasons. Possibly each one. The amount deferred from this season would not be paid out as it was not earned.  That's my understanding.

As long as they don't claim they should get paid, I don't think they should get any grief at all. They're putting their money where their mouths are.

Seems like the guys sitting out have all mad tons of money already.  But anyone can sit out this year or any other year if they want to.  Not a big deal to me,

Four guys, so far.  Three of them, yeah.  Joe Ross, not so much.   So he hasn’t really made much relatively.  He’s made around $2M in his career.  Made a $1M last year.  Was supposed to make $1.5M this year, but with the proration, he’s only giving up $556k.

Maybe teams can make themselves attractive to free agents based on how extensive their anti-Covid safeguards are. Players would not only lower the risk of infection, but also the risk of sacrificing portions of their contracts.

That’s like how the Browns had a run where somebody got a bad staph infection every year. If the virus is still an issue in the offseason then reputations like this could definitely affect signings.

But he has reported to camp.   They just had live footage of him stretching.

He says it is still up in the air.

If the Angels have 10 positives right now, that might help him make up his mind.

LOL.  Players are going to look at how much money they can get just like always.

    • I don’t think we saw enough of Valaika defensively at 2B (73 innings total) to draw any conclusions about whether he’s better than Alberto.    I tend to doubt he is, but I don’t really have a strong view about it.     I thought Valaika did a nice job with the bat, and in particular, showed more power than I would have expected.   I’m not sold that he’s a .791 hitter, but he showed enough to hold his 40-man spot this winter.    
    • my takeaway from 2020 is Mountcastle, Hays, Akin, Kremer, and to lesser extent Mullins.   Santander and Iglesias did good things.  Means finished strong.  Hope.
    • Joe West and Angel Hernandez asked me to say hello for them.
    • Thanks for sharing that.  Don’t believe I’ve heard Martyn before.  Now, I’d like to hear the Foo Fighters cover it.
    • The great increases in homers and strikeouts have occurred in the last few years. I think it may be because the players are practicing putting backspin on the balls when they hit them. The backspin will make the balls travel farther, but it's also harder to put backspin on a baseball by hitting it. If you watch Sports Center when they are showing highlights of homeruns, they usually show in slow motion some of the batters' swings. If you see this from the camera angle that is near the dugout facing the batter, you can see that the batters are swinging using a downward angle. The downward angle will put backspin on the ball(if it is hit just right). It's also harder to hit the ball when your swing has that angle. So if the batters hit the pitches just right, the balls will have backspin and if those balls are in the air they will have more of a chance of going over the fence. But it is also harder to make contact with the pitch, which makes an increase in strikeouts inevitable.  Analytics have made the old idea of the level swing just something in the memories of us old-timers.
    • I like games when balls are put in play.  Mountcastle puts balls in play.  I like Ryan Mountcastle. 😉
    • DJ LeMahieu is a free agent at the end of the year
