It would appear that Major League Baseball has hit a snag in its negotiations between owners and the players association. A pay cut was agreed upon earlier this month and now players are being asked again to reduce their salaries to find a balance in lost revenue for the season. MLB is hoping to return for an 82 game schedule starting around the Fourth of July, but concerns are rapidly growing after the players association called the latest proposal “extremely disappointing.” Some players had already voiced their opinions over the original pay cut, now more are starting to speak out.
Players are expected to discuss through the weekend, they could ask for a longer season to get closer to full prorated salaries. Hitting the panic button may be a little premature at this time, but for fans who are eager for MLB to return, this latest development certainly has many on the edge of their seat.
