*Phillies outfielder Andrew McCutchen, the father of two young sons, likened MLB’s treatment of players unto a parent withholding juice from a potty-training toddler.
Desperate to broker a deal with summer approaching, MLB’s owners presented a “new” proposal Friday, offering players a 72-game season at 70 percent of their prorated 2020 salaries. While the owners may see this as a peace offering to players seeking a longer season, the players beg to differ.
“I know we agreed on juice,” said McCutchen in a Twitter video that quickly went viral. “But what about water?”
