NBA Union vs MLB Union

I was reading how the big three in Miami all agreed to take less money and not max out so they could play together and try to win a ring.(personally I don't think it will work) 

 

I was wondering if this could happen in baseball?   I do not see it happening in baseball.  In the past the Union has frowned on players who were willing to not max out.  Remember the Union position when we thought we had a shot at CC.  I think the Union would wail like a mashed cat if a couple of huge Free Agents tried to pull a deal like this.

 

Second question I am guessing Scott Boras does not do NBA guys?  The mind set seems different in the NBA you see guys willing to take less for a chance at a ring.  Can you ever see a Major Free Agent MLB player taking less for the chance at a ring? I just do not see the Union letting them get away with it.

 

The MLB mindset seems to be get the Max at all costs(not saying that is wrong capitalism is what it is) I guess in the end I am just marveling at the fact the NBA guys walked away from a fair amount of money and their Union never said a word.
