It's also a testimony to the thin margins a lot of teams operate on, as well as how much expenses are past just what player salary numbers are.

so maybe I'm missing something here. MLB is planning on playing half of their season yet the players want full pay? am I understanding that correctly? if so, GTFO and welcome to the real world.
I say lay them off and let them file for UI.

No, I think they already agreed to play with a prorated salary based on games played. MLB wants to drop their pay further as the games will be fan-less to start.

You are missing something. They agreed to play for pro-rated salaries, so an 82 game season would mean about 50% and change of their regular salaries. The latest proposal from MLB proposed salary amounts at less than 25% of their full salary

gotcha. thanks to both of you for your replies. I had the TV on while WFH so I wasn't paying super close attention. the graphic that they put up made it look like MLBPA was wanting full season salaries.

Sounds like the owners are trying the split the union like the NFL owners have been doing to their players union for years.
