Washington Nationals closer Sean Doolittle didn't refrain from voicing his response to team owners approving MLB's proposal to start the 2020 regular season amid the coronavirus crisis. The players' union will reveal their decision within the next 24 hours, and there has already been a butting of heads over how much players will be compensated in the shortened season.

As it turns out, Doolittle's wife -- Eireann Dolan -- willingly joined the polarizing conversation by blasting Illinois governor JB Pritzker, who brazenly called out big leaguers for "holding out for more money."

Dolan notes that Sullivan's criticism is invalid in that players haven't even reviewed MLB's proposal yet.

Things are getting heated, and you can only assume that this will continue until the players' decision is publicized. After months of believing that public safety concerns would be the driving force that derailed baseball's comeback efforts, it's quickly become apparent that any cancellation of the 2020 season will be due to a rift between the players and owners.

Dolan unleashed another post to ensure that Pritzker received her initial message.

Strap in folks, because this is going to get a lot worse before it gets better.
