Rays' Snell blasts proposed pay cuts: 'I'm risking my life'

Rays' Snell blasts proposed pay cuts: 'I'm risking my life'”

The former NL MVP opened up Thursday evening about comments made by Tampa Bay Rays star Blake Snell regarding taking a further reduction in salary to play this season. And that's just the way it is for me. "What do you mean, 'It should not be a thing?' It 100% should be a thing".

"But the document also provided for the possibility of a discussion about the "economic feasibility" of starting games in instances where there are no fans, giving the owners an opening to say they will not play unless the economics are revised".

The rant came after Major League Baseball proposed a 50-50 split of revenue during a shortened season.

"On top of of that, it's getting taxed".

But the proposal offered by owners reportedly includes a 50-50 split of revenues between the league and the players, which would diminish player salaries during a season that would consist of 82 games instead of the usual 162.

Snell, 27, was scheduled to make $7 million this season in the second year of a five-year, $50 million contract, per Cot's Baseball Contracts, but MLB players agreed this spring to be paid on a prorated basis for this season. It's just a hard time with a lot going on to make it even harder, " Topkin quoted Snell as saying.

"I want to apologize for leaving the impression that baseball players shouldn't have the right to bargain, to protect their health and safety", the Democrat said.

At his briefing on Wednesday, he said "I want to address something that I said yesterday, regarding baseball and baseball players".

"If I get the 'rona, guess what happens with that?"

Pritzker faulted players on Tuesday, saying "I realize that the players have the right to haggle over their salaries" but adding "I'm disappointed in many ways that players are holding out for these very, very high salaries and payments during a time when I think everybody is sacrificing". "The damage that was done to my body, that's going to be there forever".

Snell was 21-5 with an American League-best 1.86 ERA in 2018, then went 6-6 with a 4.29 ERA previous year, when he broke a toe in his right foot on April 14 while moving furniture and missed almost two months due to left elbow surgery on July 29. His mind already is turning to 2021.

"In my head, I'm preparing for next season". "I absolutely support that right, and I should have made that more clear". "Y'all gotta understand man, for me to go, for me to take a pay cut is not happening, because the risk is through the roof, it's a shorter season, less pay".

"I feel like the (Players Association) and the players are mostly doing a good job of that, keeping it between us". It's just not worth it. Good for him. I love Snell, the guy's a beast. "It's just not worth it".
