The owners continue to prolong the MLB lockout, while also providing more hard evidence as to why they’ve been so cheap for far too long.
It’s getting harder for fans and players to stomach any more of this drama.
This morning, it was revealed by Evan Drellich of The Athletic that there were a group of MLB owners that were reportedly opposed to a higher luxury tax.
Among this group was Los Angeles Angels owner Arte Moreno.
Drellich’s report also includes that the owners wanted to count meal money as part of the luxury tax, which to no surprise, did not sit well with the players.
Arte Moreno doesn't deserve Mike Trout. What an embarrassment.
The Diamondbacks ($238M to $1.32B), Reds ($270M to $1.085B) and Tigers ($82M to $1.26B) have appreciated by a combined $3.075B since their last sales.

The Owners Are Lying
MLB owners continue to act as if they’re broke and that owning a baseball team isn’t “profitable.”
This is a complete disgrace to fans, players, and the game of baseball as a whole.
Owners need to quit pretending that owning a baseball team doesn’t generate enough income.
These owners make billions upon billions of dollars running professional sports organizations, and people all around the game are sick and tired of hearing the owners complain about how they are struggling with revenue.
The owners are lying straight through their teeth and not even trying to hide it.
They don’t seem to care about public perception anymore.
They just want to try as hard as they can to make themselves look like heroes and frame the players as the bad guys, when the truth is the complete opposite.
The owners only continue to make themselves look bad in this situation.
They don’t care that these publicity stunts are damaging their image and reputation.
All they care about is making as much money as possible.NEXT: Mike Trout Makes A Rare Statement To Call Out MLB
