I'm always willing to work hard for your entertainment dollar. Yes yes indeed all right. Let's go back to this big news of the day. Rob the forty niners and we talked about look. They moved up to number three in the draft. The dolphins moved back from three two to six because they traded with the niners trade with the eagles who were willing to go from six to twelve. What that tells me. Rob is number. Three things three quarterbacks to san francisco moved up to get a quarterback because they don't believe in jimmy g. for one reason or another one reason because they don't think he's at good and the second or it could be healthy and yeah he's good we win but he's he's heard half the time so whatever the reason they don't fully believe in him for the long haul but on the other hand rob a guy that people had questions about two guys actually in miami. I think this is a signal that they do. Believe in two. And they're they're willing to go with him this year coming up and believed they. He'll progress and become their franchise quarterback and then in philadelphia where it was speculated that they might actually take quarterback at six is seems to me like they believe at least for this year in jalen hurts whether it's belief or we just don't want to have another situation where our starters looking over his shoulder whatever the case or we don't hurts or chris. We don't. We don't like the quarterback who there do you know what i mean like that. That could be a real another reason. Why you get out of that you look at them and say yeah other than lawrence after that. I'm not sure so. I don't want to lock into a contract with a you know what i mean like that right. We're i don't believe in them. I mean that's why you move out of that usually. That's why you move out of those slots. Could you not interested in any of those quarterbacks who will coming out. I'm just saying no you could be could be. I mean the the history of quarterback hit and misses is just such mrs. yes. I mean tool you know. We don't know everybody loved him in college and coming out right and now it's like okay. We'll see the verdicts out. I mentioned sam darnold earlier. He was the third pick in the draft. Anything somewhere by him. Chris and he might he wear the bus. But at this point saying like there's a big question is whether or not the jet should stick with him because he hasn't done it yet. So you just quarterbacks man it looks some of the best. Tom brady number six rounder. Joe montana a third rounder route. Dak prescott four dry dropped all the way in the first one now. Yup in the twenties. I mean so it is it is. It's a tough thing to do. Is to nail these quarterbacks and so yeah you you could be right. But i like their miami's going with to Look he wasn't overly impressive last year. But i didn't see anything to make me think this like i. I think he deserves a season. At least you know. Like i see nothing to make me think. Oh he's not our guy. Give him a shades was they sent a mixed signals. You gotta admit that. During his patrick pulo they were dealing with them and pull them out of moments chris wait could grow and learn and being a big spy and they wound up doing all. That didn't make the playoffs anyway. I mean some off the hands for him. Yeah he seems. I agree with you but he seems to have that attitude the coach that you know whatever it takes to win this game if you're not having a good game that's kind of like a high school mentality. Are you know what i mean like. If you're not you don't have tonight. I'm pulling you and putting somebody else in but it's odd to see but know we'll see what happens this year with him and jalen hurts You know statistically wasn't very good had the one big win over new orleans but certainly The verdict the jury's out. We got to see so They're rebuilding obviously and we'll see what hurts can do this year all right baseball. Rob the all star game this year next year is in atlanta..

"mlb players association" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"Way back in March the MLB Players Association came to an agreement with Major League Baseball as to how they would proceed in light of the corona virus and having a baseball season now that was way back in March when we were trying to find our way and figure out just exactly what was going to happen and then all of a sudden at some point Fred in you know may we started to get worried about some negotiation tactics that Major League Baseball is trying to engage in with the Players Association after they had come to an agreement and for me one of the most informative follows on Twitter has been Eugene freedman he is a labor lawyer and you can follow him on Twitter he's at Eugene freedman that's E. U. G. E. N. E. F. R. E. D. M. A. N. and he has been doing a great job of explaining exactly what's going on in terms of tactics here and so I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to invite him to the show Fred and ask him to just make a smarter about this whole situation so let's do that now as we bring in Eugene Eugene how you doing this morning well great thanks for having me on our pleasure Eugene all right so can you you know yeah I'm sorry he doesn't know what a task ahead of what we see if he's gonna make me smarter cell no problem ahead of time okay I somehow I think just just by saying he's having a he's doing okay he's already made a smarter but Eugene all right so help us out here maybe just you know where you think it's prudent to start from in terms of what's going on here between Major League Baseball and the Players Association so sure thanks a lot guys one thing that I think we we just have to start out with context wise as you mentioned you have the Players Association and the league agreed to it a a process to return to work I believe it was on March twenty six and that process agreement contained a number of things in it it can change two things that have been talked about quite a bit one was pro rata pay and that basically said that I just come back for half a season now receive half a season's worth of salary if they come back for a quarter of the season they'll get a quarter of a season's worth of salary and the other big thing that it contains wires and this is based on reporting because I don't think that the the actual agreement has been made public and I haven't seen the first like but the other big thing it contained was the commissioner has unilateral discretion about whether this season should be played based on economic feasibility and if they do play season how long that season should be when it should start but it should at so there were other things in that agreement including a restructuring of the draft and a few other things like a lump sum payment to players in advance to help the players who were receiving the minimum to get through the first few months of the season order what would have been this season and those those were obviously all things that were agreed to mutually by force so once we started seeing that baseball was beginning discussions to come back the way I viewed it as a labor lawyer was those things are already for clothes they've been agreed to they've been signed off by the parties even though wages hours and other terms and conditions of bargaining or mandatory subjects of bargaining the parties have a duty and obligation to come together and negotiate them once they've actually negotiated them that relieves them of that duty they only have to renegotiate them at their wild at their consent basically both parties have to consent to re open those agreements and the Players Association when it was floated first that the owners wanted to do a fifty fifty split and then subsequently proposed a sliding scale for reduced salaries the Players Association said no we're not interested in that we have an agreement and the players came back with a proposal that I felt was very strategic because they basically said well we're not going to negotiate pay over we will negotiate is what we gave to you which is that unilateral discretion to start the season and for how long the season will be played and so they proposed a hundred fourteen games with specific start and end dates on that and move this season later so that there would be regular season games played in October so it seems and then the playoffs would occur in November and that's when a lot of the the discussion became well the parties are too far apart to actually get a deal done I actually disagree Iraq I think that the parts are actually getting closer to a deal because they're both realizing now that the thing is that they agreed to in March are going to stay in place and what they really have to deal with or the health and safety issues about getting the players back on the field labor lawyer Eugene freedman joining us here at ESPN one thousand you can if you want the one thing that was a sticking point a couple of weeks ago we haven't heard much I know you did preface this by saying you have not seen the agreement but it seemed for awhile there we were going back and forth that the owners have put in the agreement that if in fact there were no fans in the stands that they would re look at the percentage and the players are basically saying no that wasn't there I mean are we supposed to just take my word for it and you would think that if it was there it would be a little more push back in a little bit more in the forefront and is that it is right now yeah I think that a lot of unfortunately a lot of what happens in baseball negotiations is that the posturing between the parties is in public rather than just behind closed doors there are a lot of unions to negotiate collective bargaining agreements negotiate mid term agreements and those agreements are all done behind closed doors there's a lot of flowery language I get because we're out of it that that happened and you know that sometimes this is the party at all you know they they get uncomfortable with each other but nobody outside their room knows that they're uncomfortable with each other or that they're having that this agreement in this case you've got be writers we've got people work for Major League Baseball network who also write about baseball for newspapers you know it's it's kind of odd from that perspective but you know they they look at the party we get to these people that they trust in the media to put things out personally you know having not seen that as you said we don't know exactly what the agreement said but if it's really sad that the parties would re open negotiations on this subject that would have been explicit in the agreement it wouldn't have been a private email among three lawyers in the Major League Baseball office who then lifted to a you know that email to a reporter who works for Major League Baseball network it would have passed so just would have required the parties to go back together and we negotiated labor lawyer Eugene freedman joining us here on ESPN one thousand I'm Jeff Miller alongside Fred humor today all right Eugene so then it may be at from your perspective as a labor attorney explained to the listeners you know maybe just don't completely understand the whole idea of why you know a fifty fifty split that was proposed like like when you can't actually see the quote unquote books how how how would that even work for the players association and why they are potentially are in the right to push back on that we'll start with the second part of the question why they are in the right today we have an existing collective bargaining agreement that addresses how are you distributed it has on an individual player minimum as all of the the rules around a salary tax where if a team exceeds a certain salary for certain number of years they start paying into a levy fund that then gets redistributed by the commissioner all of that is the economic structure of the game as the parties negotiated and to to renegotiate that something that complex would take I would imagine six months to a year of on going face to face negotiations obviously on the coal that you can't really athletes in the face negotiations which makes it even more complex the do it all over soon but I don't think it's something that significant could be done that quickly and more importantly there is no obligation to renegotiated together in their collective bargaining agreement so you have to think of the the negotiations as things where there's an obligation and things where there's not an obligation and in this case there is no duty to bargain because parties have already agreed on something now on the first part of your question regarding the revenues exactly what you said D. D. each team has its own revenue stream they don't even share with each other each of your team doesn't know what the other teams are making money on exactly how much they're making they're all privately owned businesses and they are independent from any business structure the only thing they share together is the fact that they played together they have certain revenues that they're required to share and that they have a share of the work force so because they don't share with each other and their streams are sometimes tied up in non arm's length agreement so for example a lot of teams are owned by media corporations other teams own their own media outlets those agreements in terms of how much TV revenue they get are not necessarily true valuations are additionally some teams own concessions in their ballpark they they sublet them out they may own parking around there ballpark the columns only number the buildings near Wrigley Field or those considered baseball reference war and a non baseball revenues that would or would not be included in any kind of revenue sharing agreement obviously those things would all have to be worked out very complex information that the clubs do not want to share they they believe it's proprietary and so to you know reach an agreement over that first you have to have the information and the Players Association from what I understand requested information back in March they haven't gotten it the detail they would be willing to consider something like that and of course they don't want to consider so at not having the data gives them a very good excuse to say we're not doing Eugene I feel I feel a little bit smarter but my question is if we let you go will this thing be decided and you think there will be baseball and if there is it would that be the dumbest thing of all the sites that well I'm I'm an optimist I mean I'm viewing this from perhaps a slightly different perspective than than many other people but I do think that there is enough positive that both sides could win in this negotiation I know that management has been seeking expanded playoffs I know that it would increase the revenues for the ball clubs I know that the.
MLB's Next Steps and Minor League Crisis
"Is this Jeff Passan or is it jet passing? This is Jeff, Passan but Jeff Passan may actually have been right except like a week or so early. Maybe Jeff. Passan isn't. MLB INSIDER FOR ESPN jet passing. Is someone on social media pretending to be jeff who incorrectly tweeted last week that the league in players had reached an agreement. Jet Passan actually deemed me to apologize. That's actually really nice. It was. He's a he or she don't know. Let's not not all trolls don't know who who Jeff Passan's but jet said it was intended for my friends and I didn't realize ten thousand likes later. The as many people were going to see it. So, Jeff talks between the Union and the League of heated up as the clock is ticking down, there's been a lot of back and forth with you, reporting that the owners are preparing a new offer, but let's back up to last week when they before their last offer, which had huge pay cuts for the stars. The players soundly rejected it then on Sunday night. Mlb Pa submitted a counter proposal to the league. What did they ask for? In that deal was really the opposite of what the owners had proposed earlier in the week, MLB had proposed an eighty two game schedule with significant pay cuts that were on a gradient and grew larger for the players who are making more money. This was a total nonstarter for the players who have been sticking with this notion of having pro-rated salaries paid in full, so the players on Sunday came back with not just full pro rated salaries, but over one hundred fourteen games in a season that would run all the way through the end of October so that there would be a postseason in November which we have never seen before. It was. Not Quite as radical as the owners proposal was to the players, because it included things like potential deferrals and a little tiny, give back, and saying hey will have expanded playoffs through two thousand, twenty, one as well, but this was never going to be the type of proposal that the owners would consider. Let alone except. So, what are the owners counteroffer? Well, the owners having countered yet, but what they've done is they've discussed the possibility of going back into this March twenty sixth agreement that they have with the players and utilizing some of the language in there really as a Cudgel, this language essentially gives rob Manfred the commissioner, the right to make the schedule for the two thousand twenty season. Now it's after good faith discussion with the players, but it says that a schedule can be made, and it has to include economic feasibility it has include a health and safety. It has to really include all of. Of these different things that could make it viable in major league baseball's mind, the most viable way to pay players a full prorated salary that they desire is to do so over a schedule of about fifty games. Give or take a few, and that doesn't seem like a lot because it's not, but it's also the thing that is going to leverage these discussions in one of two ways Meena. It's either going to get baseball back on the field in two thousand twenty, or it's going to get baseball on a courtroom arguing over legal ease in over the enforceability of these provisions. So one hand they said all right. We'll go back to the pro rated salaries that you guys have been clamoring for that. You claimed we all agreed to back in March, but on the other hand we might end up playing significantly fewer games correct and the reason for that according to the owners. Is that every game that they play this year? They are going to lose money now. This is a contention with which the MLB Players Association vehemently disagrees, and it has been seeking out documentation to support this idea whether it's television contracts, sponsorship agreements projections internally from clubs on what their revenues would look like as well as what they would. Would have to pay out both to players to employees and two others. They're looking essentially Meena for receipts, and the League has yet to provide that sort of information, because well, that sort of information for a long time has been privileged and I think there are some teams that are afraid that if they give up too much information, it's going to give too much leverage to the players in the future to understand how the finances work exactly, and you know if you're a team. That's looking to make as much money as you can. You don't want the people who can take the most money from you knowing exactly what your hand

appreciate the call wonderful call thank you now I gotta tell you some smoke is slowly starting to emerge over the Major League Baseball and their plan to do this two thousand twenty season there are planning to present a plan for the two thousand twenty season to the MLB Players Association within the next week this is a report that is now being done out of the New York Post now the pie in the sky hope for the return to action is reportedly an opening day in early July a second spring training in June I am the they're talking about this but the MLB will need to take the coronavirus situation seriously and I would have to get wildly better over the coming weeks for July opening day otherwise it won't be feasible and you know these reports that we may have three thousand deaths a day beginning in June that would kill it altogether I want to know what you think about the team's quarantining say in Phoenix or in in Florida moving between stadiums and hotels in a single area and have the teams play against each other in empty stadiums would that be a baseball season for you Anthony found she the White House coronavirus expert has described the quarantine league as the ideal way to play games amid the conditions of the pandemic thank you understand well the idea of an isolated season has its drawbacks it could come with a bonus of significantly reducing chances of the virus spreading into the leak if if the league is playing games with teams moving between cities that would mean air travel hotels that would be terrible because potential exposure but if there can be one or two places where they play and they're in complete isolation except around the ball field would that work four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten you tell me did reveal out of Phoenix for spring training a lot of you do I don't know if baseball merry is listening but I know she's a big fan what let's get your comments Phil welcome to KGO hi Phil glad you called hi John a I I live in mesa Arizona and it's a big spring training deal I met my daughter what's in the Marriott corporation in Asia at the hotel down because of no no they they went from full spring training because of Big Spring tent the cubs played owner of the stadium down there and make sure it completely down we went from yeah person occupancy to four people in the hotel the only way for the Indian lady Dave what do they call the date she's laid off for a few months to go back to work flee menacing gets over but I'm a big fan I've never talked to you I'm glad to talk to you I've talked to Pat and I've talked to back in the way old days of KGO I'd love this radio station and I used to listen to it before we had the internet so I was listening to it on radio actual my transistor radio that's great and and you know the eighteenth so but what I want to say about the what made this is my dad's favorite baseball player and and it was such a great deal we didn't know he was honest to god I know you still live I'm I'm glad to hear that he's eighty nine acre eighty nine years old today there is not some yeah unbelievable it it meant something and but but the the the spring training down here in mesa Arizona is incredible I mean there's a lot of money that comes in I bet there's well because the weather's perfect it's seventy degrees minutes there's no humidity and and and people come out here and just just it's it's great let me ask you a question if as some in Major League are suggesting we had all the teams come down to makes the Phoenix area and they played in isolation you couldn't go to the ball park but they could play against each other in order to have a season how do you think that would go over I don't think it will go over it all I didn't personally I think just cancel the whole damn thing this is just my opinion I I don't think I would be just not the same yes I'm going to go to see Jimmy Buffett and the concert how can you get in an empty for a year right yeah you know how you can listen to it on the internet and that's wonderful but I your goal of the total sum field and see themselves you know and and in Colorado and see it boulder CO a concert goer and there seems to be a consensus that there will be some sort of Major League Baseball season this year in some form or another do you think if they can come up with something they ought to give it a shot and see what happens Yahoo ABC wouldn't hurt I mean let's just try to get you know the problem is we don't know but it seems so weird that we don't know about how things are going to re open and things are gonna happen Arizona is that we've been very lucky plus the fact that I don't know anybody who's had this this disease this virus I don't know anybody that knows anybody that's had this virus in more foreign I mean it is far like into work fine on her but you know when you go to star Cisco or to New York or whatever I guess it is a big crisis let's say you heard what your governor Doug Ducey did yesterday he announced he was lifting some coronavirus restrictions on businesses and he is the he sent an email to twenty three researchers from Arizona State University the university of Arizona and they're doing modeling but I have to tell you there is a stay at home order in Arizona until may fifteenth are you aware of that yes and and I understand a home on my wife happens to work for the largest selling business I will give you the name of it but it's the largest fabric sewing business owner in the country and their business is up a hundred and fifty percent from last year no no only just let me just be clear about the supermarket mass in the blizzard absolutely now in Arizona there have been a reported nine thousand seven hundred and seven confirmed cases of code nineteen we know there are at least four hundred and twenty six deaths and well relatively low in comparison with harder hit states the number of cases reported as of yesterday in Arizona rose by four point three percent in the last twenty four hours and thirty three deaths recorded there represented the single largest increase since the start of the pandemic so that's the reason why I'm interested because use made the statement that in Arizona there's been virtually no impact and at least what I'm hearing about Arizona is there has been impact I did not hear that I I did not know that and maybe is because lows is in town yesterday you're talking about the president yeah how you know you know went on maybe maybe it's because he was in town yesterday and then maybe that's the reason we heard that but it there there's seven point five million people in Arizona if you look at the percentages that to me that's nothing I mean and and I I don't mean to be this is an understated there's not many people but just seven and a half million people in front of five million people in Maricopa county that's not very many people but it is a problem and it's true that governor Ducey hosted Donald Trump in Phoenix on a tour of that mass production facility and the president of course did not wear a mask but the question really becomes because of your daughter and your observation about the economic impact of the question is whether or not a season could be put together and you're suggesting that it wouldn't work I yeah I don't know that it it I think you know I think what's going to happen to be honest with you I think what's gonna happen is that people even know let's say err the governor or the government states say okay it's okay to go back in the public I think people are still going to be scared and they're not going to want to go back in the public and and go without a mask and go into rice ice pleasure when going into the final round I'm certainly not going and I think I've predicted here for for the last month or so there will be no Republican or Democratic National Convention because well listen I want you know I'm glad failure you're listening I'm glad you're a participating and I appreciate it and you tell your daughter we can't wait for her to get back to work it's great talking to you John thank you Sir is really great I thank leisure by the way they're talking about up llegan club officials are in in terms of the the M. L. B. are saying that maybe they could do something in Florida or Texas or Arizona as a potential hub in various start up plans but I wouldn't go into a stadium would you M. this is a real issue you know the league has said they would prefer to host games in as many home cities as possible the favoring that option over sending teams and hubs such as Florida or Arizona sending all thirty teams to one location an option once considered among the most feasible.
