MLB Players Proposed 70 games instead of 60
That’s Amaury News and Commentary
By Amaury Pi-González
A day after the owners proposed a 60 game season beginning July 19 and ending September 29, the players union today made a counter-proposal according to ESPN this is what it calls for:
-70 game season from July 19 to September 30. -$50 million in playoff bonuses -50/50 split of new postseason TV revenues in 2021 -Universal DH -Forgiveness of salary advance for Tier I-III players -Mutual waiver of grievance
This should probably fly, but with these two sides never bet anything.
Stay well and stay tuned.
