Major League Baseball has rejected the Players’ Union’s proposal for a 114-game season. In addition, the League has announced that it will not offer a counter offer.
Major League Baseball owners initially put an offer on the table for a 82-game season. The proposal included a universal DH and major pay cuts for the players. The owners desired to begin play at the beginning of July.
The Union rejected the proposal and counted with one of its own. They proposed a 114-game season and that players would have the right to opt out of playing if they did not feel safe in concern to the pandemic. Obviously, Major League Baseball did not like this idea.
Owners have begun discussing playing a shortened season with the League. In addition, Major League Baseball stated it is ready to discuss additional ideas with the Union.
This is a very disappointing development for baseballs fans, especially Brewers’ fans. Our desire to see the Brewers make the post-season for a team record third year in a row may not be a reality at this point.
