MLB Player on Owners' CBA Negotiations: 'They Want to Kill Their Own Product'

MLB players are putting the blame squarely on the owners after the two sides could not come to an agreement Tuesday.

"It's just about morality to me," a player told David O'Brien of The Athletic. "It's a business, but business is booming....When it comes to corporate greed at that level, it's just hard to comprehend how far [owners] will go. They don’t want to just win, they want to kill their own product. It’s crazy."

The MLB Players Association rejected the final offer from the league Tuesday, likely creating a delay in the 2022 season, per ESPN's Jeff Passan.
