Ken Rosenthal: 'I expect an agreement to take place' between MLB players, owners
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.
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. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal ran through his news and notes on MLB Safe at Home and discussed the fact that MLB owners and players are focused on playing the highest number of games possible in 2020. He said altered playoff formats are certainly on the table and empty stadiums are seeming more and more likely at some point this year. 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.
