    Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer issued a statement on Twitter calling Major League Baseball's proposal for more salary reductions a non-starter.

    Labour relations in MLB have always been acrimonious, but with the sport already in a downward spiral, will this current fight over money be the tipping point for MLB?

    Baseball has their salary structure out of whack to begin with,the regular season gets to be far far too long ...And it gets rather dull,specifically if a team is virtually knocked out halfway through it

    Attendance is already on the decline and I'm not sure the optics of Billionaires fighting with Millionaires over $ during this current crisis will sit well with the general public.

    Revenues have grown, based mainly on TV $, but the whole landscape is up in the air with the coming recession.

    I find the bickering over money such a turn off. You're all going to have to make less, deal with it.

    You can all get f***ed you spoiled 1%. Owners and Players.
