The history of team control over players

Earlier this week, Major League Baseball made its first attempt at resolving its self-inflicted lockout by submitting the league’s first proposal of 2022 to the MLB Players Association. As part of our coverage of this event, we decided to take a look at the history of the “core economics issues,” beginning with Thursday’s history of the Competitive Balance Tax and how it represents ownership’s commitment not to competitive balance, but low player salaries. Today, we’ll dive into one of the players’ unions biggest demands: the reduction of service time requirements for free agency from six years to five years.

MLB World Reacts To Thursday’s Depressing News

Major League Baseball and MLB Players Association held a Zoom bargaining session on Thursday. This was the first substantive talks since the lockout began six months ago. According to league sources, the new proposal included significant increases in player’s pay for those with at least two years of service.

It also addressed players’ concerns about alleged manipulation of service time to encourage teams to include top prospects on Opening Day rosters.

MLB’s dream offer to the MLBPA

Major League Baseball locked out its players roughly a month and a half ago, and in the time since then both sides have barely so much as sent one another scathing DMs from burner accounts. Hell, I think I’ve had more correspondence with Delbert from Ludlow about why Kyle Farmer deserves a contract extension in those six weeks than Rob Manfred has had with Tony Clark.

Will MLB Video Games Be Delayed by the MLB Lockout?

If you haven’t been paying much attention to baseball since the end of the World Series, you may have missed something major. As of December 2, MLB and MLB Players Association (MLBPA) have been without a collective bargaining agreement. Because of this, MLB locked out its players with no movement towards a new agreement. While many are concerned about if the 2022 season will happen, let alone start on time, there’s another group of fans wondering about the status of MLB video games like MLB The Show 22 and OOTP Baseball 23.

MLB lockout: New proposal leaves locked-out players underwhelmed

Baseball’s first bargaining session in 43 days featured civility and ingenuity … and scant optimism that the labor dispute would end anytime soon. Over a video conference Thursday, Major League Baseball’s representatives introduced a new economic proposal that revised the industry’s arbitration system, created a process that would incentivize teams to promote young players and tweaked a previous proposal for a draft lottery. The MLB Players Association, locked out by commissioner Rob Manfred since Dec. 2 (the day after their last meeting), came away underwhelmed by the proposal and will evaluate where to go from here.
