I sound like a broken record at this point, but COVID 19 has taken a toll on every team the past few months.
Rob Manfred decided that all teams should pay their minor leaguers $400 a week until they can resume play.
Well in steps Jeff Passan with the report that the A’s will no longer pay that $400.
There is a bountiful harvest of jokes that can be made at the expense of the A’s organization, but I can’t bring myself to throw any of them out.
COVID 19 may be known as the virus that killed small markets. Including the markets that sell live bats. Okay, I got one joke, back to being serious.
I think we will see more teams follow suit very soon. I could see the Giants, Cincinnati, or even the White Sox following suit after June ends.
I pray that I’m reading too deep into this, but I really don’t think I am. This could signal the beginning of the end for a lot of teams and maybe baseball.
