Owners Greed Ends MLB Labor Negotiations

I really hate being right all the time. But I told you this was going to happen, Yes the Owners Greed has pushed the players to unanimously vote down their “Last Best Proposal ”

MLB's best-and-final offer: – No changes to CBT thresholds (220/220/220/224/230) – A $5M increase on pre-arb bonus pool from $25M to $30M – An increase of minimums from $675K to $700K, moving up $10K/year — Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) March 1, 2022

MLB owners laid down their gauntlet and the players union rightfully said FU. After months of not talking at all, meeting for minuets and not hours. And a complete lack of respect for the people who line their pockets (Thats You People) we are headed to a long drawn out season of discontent, The un-glorious summer begins.

BREAKING: MLBPA player leaders agreed unanimously not to accept MLB's final proposal, and there will be no deal on a new collective-bargaining agreement before MLB's 5 p.m. ET deadline, sources tell ESPN. MLB has threatened to cancel its March 31 Opening Day without a new deal. — Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) March 1, 2022

Make no mistake people everything you’ve heard and read over the past 48 hours was nothing more than framing the MLBPA as the bad guys. it was all propaganda. Leaked garbage to trusted reporters. Not journalists.  REPORTERS , spewing their bile to make the players look like the villains.

MLB spokesman says: "They couldn't make us a CBT (luxury) tax proposal last night, so we agreed to extend the deadline to exhaust every option. ….The MLBPA had a decidedly different tone today and made proposals inconsistent with the previous discussions.'' — Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) March 1, 2022
