The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in the suspension of most sports.  Assuming Major League Baseball can get started this season, it would most likely happen without fans.  This means lost revenue across the board.

From FanSided:

According to Ken Rosenthal and Evan Drellich at The Athletic, the MLBPA is looking to push a counter-proposal that features deferred salaries and an even longer 2020 season — perhaps as many as 110 games. Logically, the deferrals would help the initial hit for team owners, obviously allowing player salaries to be spread out over several years; and a longer season is potentially a win for both parties (given there’s not a second wave of COVID-19).

However, if players were to budge at all in terms of more salary cuts — a notion that hasn’t been raised by anyone within the MLBPA yet — FiveThirtyEight‘s Travis Sawchik suggests a 19% cut from pro-rated salaries would be an appropriate middle-ground for players. However, Scherzer’s tweet linked above appears to state rather clearly that the union is over such talks.

All-in-all, it appears MLB and the MLBPA are still far apart in discussions. The league’s failure to provide documentation regarding its various revenues — which the MLBPA has asked for several times now — certainly hasn’t helped move things along either.
