The Clubhouse / Re: So will there be a 2020 season?
« Last post by HalfSmokes on Yesterday at 08:46:02 PM »
The deal the players and clubs worked out was part up front, and then rest based on how many games they play. It is in the players' financial interests to play as many games as possible.

It depends on the player, if you’re a pitcher, especially an older pitcher- this has injury written all over it- abbreviated training before hand and games packed as closely as possible

If you have a guaranteed salary regardless are you really going to leave your family to go live in a quarantine dorm for a few months? I don’t the the mlbpa says yes to this and they really don’t have much reason to do that

The Clubhouse / Re: 2020 Season Ticket Holders (STH)
« Last post by Duke of Earl on Yesterday at 08:04:05 PM »
The Nationals' position is increasingly untenable.  They really can't force STH to continue to pay.  You can revoke your credit card authorization, according to the contract they drafted.  Though the contract also says you are still obligated to pay.  But then again, they also have obligations they are not meeting.    It would behoove the team to do something other than collect the April 15 payment.
They should be offering nothing less than a full refund. They are defaulting on their end (even if it's not their fault) by not providing a product.  No matter what lame-brained season they concoct, it won't  resemble a real season.  You won't see real baseball.
I feel for those of you who are season ticket holders.  Than goodness I'm not.  If I were, I'd be working on a class action suit.

There are a lot of people who are forced by circumstance to work away from their family for part of the year.  I was pretty surprised that this was a big deal to them because they signed on for a traveling job

A huge portion of the CBA covers traveling arraignments (including days off and hotel quality)- that’s what they signed up for. It’s a moot point because this whole thing is probably nearly logistically impossible

My understanding has been that the deal with mlbpa is that minor leaguers and mlb minimum guys are getting money per day or game missed, but that higher paid guys are only getting paid for games played pro rata.

That article is considered with my understanding. $170 MM total advanced for 2 months is <$3MM per team per month. Nats normal payroll is about $35MM per month.
That makes sense. And why they would want to play.
