Just pay players, start 2020 season


Former Cincinnati Reds relief pitcher Rob Dibble shared a message via Twitter with Major League Baseball owners: Please pay the players and start the 2020 MLB season.

From Dibble on Saturday night:

MLB and Turner Sports reportedly agreed to a new billion-dollar deal for the network to continue broadcasting postseason baseball. MLB owners have a conference call Monday – according to USA TODAY’s Bob Nightengale – to determine the next course of action concerning the 2020 season.

The Enquirer’s Paul Daugherty wrote Monday in The Morning Line that MLB’s proposed 48-game schedule is “cheap … the cubic zirconia of seasons.”

Dibble, a member of the Nasty Boys who pitched for the Reds from 1988 to 1993, shared criticism via Twitter of MLB commissioner Rob Manfred earlier this year for Manfred’s handling of the Houston Astros’ sign-stealing controversy.
