MLB Goes into Player Lockout

It’s official now the MLB collective bargaining agreement has since passed, and the owners voted unanimously to lock out the players for the upcoming major league season.

Now, despite this proceeding, many still hold hope there will be a 2022 season.

In fact, Commissioner Rob Manfred said it’s the best course of action to ensure that there will be a season.

But he also pinned it on the players’ demands as a reason why no agreement was reached.

Suffice it to say that the players association, as is their right, made an aggressive set of proposals in May, and they have refused to budge from the core of those proposals.

Things like a shortened reserved period.

A 100 million dollar reduction in revenue sharing and salary arbitration for the whole two year class are bad for the sport, bad for the fans.
