Ken Rosenthal: America 'would be furious' if MLB players, owners can't come to agreement


No matter which side of the argument you're on, Ken Rosenthal said the MLB owners and players failing to come to an agreement to return to play over money would make the country as a whole very upset.

Despite the impasse MLB players and owners are currently at in negotiating terms of an unprecedented 2020 season, Ken Rosenthal said he expects the two sides to get a deal done. Rosenthal said 18 months without baseball would lower the sport's standing in American society.
In order for an 82-game schedule to work as currently proposed, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal said players and owners need to come to an agreement by about June 5. Rosenthal also said that although the two sides are still far apart, this isn't the first time we've seen an ugly labor dispute before an agreement was reached.
Ambassador Susan Rice, former National Security Adviser to President Obama, responds to President Trump's adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner's recent statements regarding the Trump administration's response to the coronavirus crisis.
Players have already agreed to prorated salaries in 2020. Ken Rosenthal reports that MLB owners may have to ask players to take additional pay cuts and such an ask could create even more friction between team ownership and players as new CBA negotiations loom.
