Tony Clark, Rob Manfred Views Show Large Gap To Bridge 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Dec 3, 2021 2:42 am

Just hours into Major League Baseball\'s first work stoppage in 26 years, Rob Manfred and Tony Clark presented diametrically opposed views of each side\'s negotiating positions that point to a lengthy lockout.

In his press conference, Manfred said the union\'s proposal for greater free agency and wider salary arbitration would damage small-market teams.

In a separate news conference, Clark accused Manfred of \"misrepresentations\" in his letter to fans explaining the lockout and said, \"It would have been beneficial to the process to have spent as much time negotiating in the room as it appeared it was spent on the letter.\"

Both sides trying to figure how to get more money while the fans have to pay a larger share of whatever money they have for non essential expenses.
