The national headlines have more or less been reading “BASEBALL IS CLOSE TO RETURNING” — but is it, really? Or does the MLB owners’ proposal to ask for more concessions from the players — potentially laying the groundwork for another ugly labor fight — actually take us further away from seeing our favorite game this year?
And how much of that is the owners’ actual plan?
Paul Noonan, Ryan Topp and I tackle those questions — and all of the health concerns the owners didn’t touch in their money-centric proposal — in this week’s Milwaukee’s Tailgate podcast.
Great job by @BadgerNoonan @RDTopp and @JaymesL calling out the owners’ proposal for the hot garbage it is https://t.co/MDsJ2QbDT9— Rubie Q (@Rubie_Q) May 12, 2020
