Unlike blue collar guy Bryce Harper who saw Snell getting raked for being out of touch and decided to jump on that bandwagon.

They're both completely out of touch with reality. Snell got drafted right out of HS. He and Harper have never worked a day in their life, outside of baseball.

It's a free country, so if they dont wanna play because they're afraid of infecting themselves/family, or risking their futures, than dont play -- fine with me. Got nothing against them. Just enough with the "I want mine" temper tantrums

Right, I'd have less problem with a guy sitting out a season and taking the salary hit. It's the Doolittle's who not only want to make the decision for themselves, but also for the stadium and network employees who they don't feel should be trusted to choose on their own.

Absolutely loathe people in the public eye like Doolittle who tweet and run their mouths about political issues and the various "causes" out there. So that they can "enlighten" we, The Great Unwashed. Please.

The A's held off paying their April stadium rent. They cited terms & conditions in the contract as reason. Angels are furloughing some employees effective June 1. Wonder what other teams will be next. Ahh, but don't tell Snell about all this. Obviously, money grows on trees.

Cubs just announced pay cuts for non-player personnel. Pirates to furlough workers, and their Executive staff took voluntary pay cuts. Cue images of Snell and Show Me The Money gifs.

Those are just team employees, that doesn't include contractors, TV and radio network employees, the people who make the uniforms, bats, and balls, etc. But Doolittle and his wife would mandate that those people stay at home and live off of government checks indefinitely.

Of course. If they're for something, it should be required, and if they're against it, it should be prohibited. Besides, more dependent people mean more votes for the left.

(In the name of compassion, of course.)


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

Earlier today I saw Snell's full, unedited comments from earlier this month. Thread title revised accordingly.

Excerpt from MLBTradeRumors.com: The (large market) LA Angels will be furloughing employees from nearly every department, including, in the words of Ken Rosenthal, “weakening its amateur scouting department heading into the draft.”

Some of the readers who comment on these articles gotta be either player agents or just dumb fucks:

Just give the players 100% of their salaries. They get paid while being on the IL. Why would this be different. F

This is how I feel. Unless there is a contract clause saying if the league can’t play you don’t get paid, a contract is a contract and they should get paid.

From ESPN:

The league's proposal, which includes bonuses if postseason games are played, offers lower-salaried players a higher percentage of their expected wages and would give some of the game's biggest stars a fractional cut of their salaries. The formula the league offered, for example, would take a player scheduled to make the league minimum ($563,500), give him a prorated number based on 82 games ($285,228) and take a 10% cut from that figure, leaving him with a $256,706 salary.

The scale goes down as salaries go up, with every dollar:

$563,501 to $1 million paid at 72.5%

$1,000,001 to $5 million paid at 50%

$5,000,001 to $10 million paid at 40%

$10,000,001 to $20 million paid at 30%

$20,000,001 and up paid at 20%

-------------------------

Looks good to me. The young guys in their first three years get a quarter million instead of a half million. A fair deal since they would be playing half the number of games. The vets would take a big hit, based on the fact that there would be ZERO fans in the stands buying tickets, parking, souvenirs, $7 hot dogs, and $15 beers. But the vets don't want to take a pay cut, they'd skip a season and screw over their younger teammates.

MLB needs to make this happen, even if the top five highest paid players on the team sat out the season I'd still watch. My guess is that it would be just like the NFL strike with the replacement players when the stars tried to hold out but caved in week by week.
