In players proposal, they move to 70 percent of pay as opposed to the 51 percent they’d get at prorated pay over 82 games. So, monetarily speaking, players actually moved in the opposite direction. The only conclusion you can draw is they just feel like they have the upper hand.
Union/player response to MLB proposal calls for 114 games (as opposed to 82). Regular season through October (instead of September), prorated but with some deferrals (instead of steep sliding scale). “No progress,” responds ownership source.
For the last two months, the Nationals paid minor leaguers $400 a week. They decided to decrease that to $300 in June, and have not assured those same players what their pay will look like beyond that: https://t.co/Tbtek7QfLP
RT @KenTremendous: Mark Lerner, the principal owner of the Nationals, is the richest person in Maryland. His net worth is 5.3 billion dollars. He is taking $100/week away from people making $400/week. This is so much more offensive to me than people stealing sneakers or cheesecakes. https://t.co/6IBrLfqV6y
RT @Britt_Ghiroli: The Nationals are the only known team to cut down to $300/wk for all of its minor leaguers, incl AAA guys. Said 1 player: "I really feel for the guys that were let go. Most of us live paycheck to paycheck at best, and in this situation, I’m not sure there is much they can do."
