    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    I think the players have their hands tied here to be honest. All these guys speaking up via social media their thoughts, no matter how right they might be, if they don't agree to something, they aren't getting paid at all this season. The way I'm seeing it unfold, unfortunately right now it's take what you can get to play, or get nothing at all.

    I've heard that Oakland is one of the worst financially-managed organizations in the league

    Seems like future major leaguers (current minor leaguers or potential draftees) ger shafted a lot from these negotiations...

    I don't mean to speak for him, but I think he means the view of whoever thinks the players are looking to be made out the bad guys. And that tweet doesnt make sense to me. Everything I've read paints the owners as the obstacles, not the players.

    Yeah. It's time to stop dicking around with this. Either they do it or they don't, and for the sake of the sport it better not be ugly.

    I'm still working and we're getting paid hazard pay. An extra $2 an hour. It's really nice and I agree that every person who is working should get some kind of temporary bonus...at least in places where stay-home orders are taking place and non-essentially deemed businesses are forced closed.

    Man I can't wait for the park to have that kind of electricity again. It's been way too long.

    This is a very well balanced view of the entire thing, and one I also subscribe to

    Just read that LA is going to have stay at home order until August...

    Gotcha, didn't catch the "revenue sharing" aspect...guess I take the players' side with this one then, especially since they already negotiated a deal back in March for the prorated salaries. Doesn't make sense why the owners would try to renegotiate, unless they thought it wouldn't be as bad as it has turned out to be?

    I don't see what there is to negotiate. You play half the season, you get paid for half the season. Plus, no tickets being sold nor concessions. Major revenue loss for the teams. How is that deal not fair to the players? Unless I am missing something, seems to be more than fair to me.

    Originally what I was thinking. As much as I would love to see way more games with Cubs, MiL, Stl, Cin, etc the Sox chances of winning more games and making the postseason are definitely heightened playing more games against KC and Detroit. Though I'm not sure maybe playing more games against Minnesota balances it out?
