As a post-script, have you been wondering what’s been going on with the “discussions” between Major League Baseball and Minor League Baseball?

Well, Minor League Baseball sent a letter to MLB which went public yesterday, and it was scathing. It suggested MLB was lying, uncooperative and unresponsive to MiLB’s negotiating offers, and taking advantage of Minor League Baseball. You can read it, unannotated, here.

Later, MLB responded with its own letter, refuting MiLB point by point, calling the minor league owners hypocritical, and claiming that MiLB takes advantage of the free labor MLB provides, while continuing to scold the use of public complaints while publicly complaining. You can read that letter here.

What do you think about the two sides? Is MLB’s stated reason for wanted to eliminate short-season baseball compelling at all (i.e. moving the draft later, reducing the length of the draft, the very low chances of players drafted late to make the majors)? Do you believe this is just about cutting money, whether it’s less than 1% of the budgets or not? Are minor league owners just as culpable as major league owners at abandoning communities? And is anyone even taking the “Dream League” seriously, or MLB’s other league suggestions seriously?

Is minor league baseball even going to exist in 2021?
