    I forget where I read it, but I heard that's the backdoor endgame. Get a salary cap, because that will also mean there will be a salary floor.

      The small fry should have instituted a salary cap ages ago. I assume the bribe not to was revenue sharing so they could just use that to line their pockets, lose to the rich clubs, and fuck their fan bases over.

          The salary cap never got instituted because the owners screwed the players out of millions by colluding in free agency

                  And unfortunately a good portion of people would rather take the billionaires’ side. The average FA contract has dropped nearly 50% since the last CBA, but you know how many “poor player” sarcastic comments you’ll see?

                  Same story every time. When it’s the owners, it’s their business. But for the players, it’s never their jobs, it’s always just a game.

                  • Most players aren’t millionaires, especially the minor leaguers, fuck outta here with that “billionaires versus millionaires” anti-labor BS.

                      Minor leaguers are not unionized and are not part of the CBA. I do agree they should get paid more though.

                          Minor League salary minimums are still covered in the CBA so they are effectively part of it.

                            I can't find any evidence of that. Do you have any source on that, or is it just from memory? Pretty sure the only impact is that MiLB players on the 40-man roster wont be able to play if MLB is locked out.

                            They did get a small raise as part of the MilB re-org that MLB forced last year. But that wasn't part of the 2016 CBA.

                            • Minimum salary


                              Usually one of the last items addressed. Was $570,500 in the major leagues in 2021, $46,600 in the minor leagues for a player signing his initial major league contract and $93,000 in the minor leagues for a player signing a second or later major league contract.

                              Both sides would raise minimum but disagree on amounts.
