Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw was a guest on AM570’s “The Dan Patrick Show” and voiced his support to Tampa Bay Ray’s pitcher Blake Snell who earlier this week, said that he wouldn’t risk his health to take less money to play during the coronavirus pandemic.

“He was probably a little bold in what he said but we’ve already made a pay concession. We’re going to get paid prorated based on the shortened season and I thought that was what we decided as a union. Obviously, not having fans changes things for some owners but we’re still playing the same game. If it deems medically that we’re able to play and the two sides can’t figure out the business side of it…it’s not going to look good on anybody. If we can figure it out medically I’m optimistic that we can play.”

Kershaw isn’t the only player who voiced his opinion, earlier in the week, Philadelphia Phillies Bryce Harper expressed his feelings towards the issue as well.

“He ain’t lying. He’s speaking the truth bro, I ain’t mad at him. Somebody’s gotta say it, at least he manned up and said it. Good for him. I love Snell, the guy’s a beast. One of the best lefties in the game.” Harper said in his own Twitch channel.

Hopefully the players union and the MLB owners can find a resolution soon. Safety is always going to be a high priority for all players and owners. Do you think it’s fair that players get a pay cut? Some feel as if players get paid enough and taking a lower salary shouldn’t matter. When does the importance of the business side of things take over the love of the game?

    • The players are right to feel that they deserve the pay they earned, that’s the point of being better than others in the game. Owners are just trying to save money any way they can. They (the owners) better get to figuring this out, because if the season doesn’t start, they could lose billions compared to millions.
