With no end in sight to the MLB lockout, more news seemingly comes out each day about how cheap the owners have been over the past few years.
Each bit of news makes every day the lockout rages on more frustrating and deflating.
It’s clear that the MLB owners’ main goal is not to make the league better, but rather, to keep as much money in their pockets as possible and leave the players with as little as possible, not giving them a fair share of the revenue.
More news came out early this morning, and it turns out the owners are even cheaper than we all thought.

This only further cements the owners as the villains of this work stoppage.
If the owners are so afraid to spend that they have to make a plan to include money for food as salary, that goes to show exactly what kind of people they are behind the scenes.
It’s clear that many of them not only don’t care about winning, but don’t have any interest in giving the players what they deserve.
On top of that, counting food money as salary is unfair to the players.
The owners clearly did not have good intentions coming into this whole ordeal, and by the looks of it, they still don’t seem to have good intentions.
They refuse to bargain in good faith and each time they make a proposal, it leaves fans wondering if they’re just trying to upset the players and the fans.
If anybody wondered why negotiations have gone so poorly, this is yet another piece of hard evidence.
To them, it’s all about the money and nothing else.
