Reds pitcher Trevor Bauer has always been one of the most outspoken personalities in the MLB. Most recently the issue at hand in the league has been a potential 2020 season revenue split, and Bauer didn't refrain from comment.
Bauer had a sit-down conversation with agent Rachel Luba about the pay proposal. In response, he's been greeted with too much dissent for his liking, and took to Twitter to formulate his thoughts.
Bauer brings up a fair point. The owners are looking at their employees as a form of entertainment that can be valued at whatever number they say. As long as the players are viewed as the product, the owners could care less about their employees' financial security.
MLB players want to play the season, but they want to make sure they don't set a negative precedent.
Bauer looks like he is willing to fall on his sword about this situation, and he is not to blame. If the players have already made an agreement to take a pay cut, then there should not be a need for the owners to go back on the deal.
