In these days, the conversation has gone from the rumors in free agency to the complaints of players for the recent reluctance of the owners of major leagues to offer no longer lucrative contracts, but work to the more than one hundred players who remain unemployed in these moments, when Spring Training has already started.
My col: Max Scherzer predicted this free agent off-season perfectly in Sept. After 40 yrs of Auction Mentality, MLB now has a Reverse Auction w >10 teams tanking & others going public w "We don't want him." Players like Max are crying foul. They're right. https://t.co/IWwTFaWXcI— Thomas Boswell (@ThomasBoswellWP) February 14, 2019
For one of the best big league pitchers like Max Scherzer, the owners of Major League Baseball are being toxic to the league environment in their refusal to sign free agents throughout this offseason, Mad Max told the Washington Post. :
When there are many teams trying not to win that poison the game and the experience of the fanatic. I feel that the teams are negotiating through the media. For me, that is one of the keys in the reason why we are seeing a market slower than usual. We know all the intentions of each team. It is something that other leagues consider manipulation, and it does not tolerate it.
Scherzer's voice is one that executives and executives throughout the league should listen very attentively, being one of the most important players today, in addition to another veteran with voice and vote how is Adam Wainwright of the Cardinals de San Luis, warning of a possible strike
