Seen a report on ESPN a few months back, when there was talk of this and the player told the reporter no he wouldNOT do it (I think it was a Diamondback player) and then called the reporter and said his wife said yes if that means you get paid.
I think players might do it, Trout for example if he cares about career counting stats, he might do it. Others for a few million might as well, and the younger guys might do it because they could be scared to lose their job.
As for me (and I know you didn't ask me ) if that was the only way I was going to get paid what I make now, I pretty much would have to wouldn't be much of a choice)
Yeah, doesn't sound like much of a choice to me to live in a bubble.
42% of all MLB players will be paid $100k or less for the rest of the season after declining the latest proposal. The pay off is not significant for nearly half the players who will risk their health/future health if they have complications from covid, and spend time away from their families.
