Prior to this past week, there was supreme optimism that the Major League Baseball season would be ready to kick off by early July. However, reports revealed that the players aren’t too keen on taking a significant pay cut after already agreeing to a 50-50 revenue split with owners. Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Blake Snell passionately expressed his disinterest in playing for less money during the coronavirus pandemic.

But days later, Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa appeared on “Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show” on ESPN to say that he’s willing to take the 50% pay cut to ensure the 2020 season can commence at about half its normal length.

Half the pay for half the play is certainly an interesting take from a high-profile player like Correa, but it stands in line with what former New York Yankees slugger Mark Teixeira said on ESPN’s “Get Up” earlier this week. If the season doesn’t take place this year whatsoever, then no one in the league will get paid at all.

Teixeira’s comments didn’t go over well with those around the league. Philadelphia Philies outfielder Bryce Harper and Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado all stood in support of Snell’s viral proclamation, expressing that they not only want to be paid fairly, but want to ensure that their health will be protected during the ongoing spread of COVID-19.

Correa hasn’t endeared himself to his colleagues too much in 2020 given his status as a member of the Astros team that was found guilty of illegally stealing signs back in 2017. It’s safe to say he alienated his detractors even further with his latest pronouncement.

    It’s pretty value enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content

    I like it when folks come together and share views.

    Great site, keep it up! Wow, this piece of writing is pleasant, my younger sister is analyzing these things, therefore I am
