Max Scherzer is leading the charge for MLB players in their public stance against league owners.
The Nationals ace issued a statement late Wednesday evening – voicing the opinion of many players – in refusing to negotiate a second round of pay reductions with MLB owners.
"After discussing the latest developments with the rest of the players there's no reason to engage with MLB in any further compensation reductions," Scherzer said. "We have previously negotiated a pay cut in the version of prorated salaries, and there's no justification to accept a second pay cut based upon the current information the union has received."
If the owners are so downtrodden after missing out on two months of ticket sales, then why not open their books to the public?
