As the MLBPA and MLB continue to negotiate a start to the 2020 regular season in a growingly divisive debate, the players have made one thing clear: they want to play. Nonetheless, the two parties continue to argue over pay rates, season length and other specifics of a season restart.
Fans are growing more pessimistic about the ability for the two sides to agree. Veteran St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina took to Instagram Sunday to make it clear to the fans that he wants the season back.
The players and ownership have grown more divided in their negotiations with each passing day. Yadi, a 16-year MLB veteran has shown that he and his teammates want to play. From his point of view, it's the league blocking the players' ability to get out on the field.
Earlier this week, Molina shared a statement from the MLBPA on his Instagram account. The post details MLB players' frustrations with being unable to start the season due to salary disputes, and their desire to pick up their gloves and play again.
The two sides stand at an impasse, and public support continues to grow behind the players. Hopefully the owners and players can reach an agreement, or we may be seeing a replay of the 1994 MLB player strike.
