This certainly sucks for these people.

The sad thing is that these people COMBINED probably make less than our lowest paid player yearly. Paying these people through the summer probably was the equivalent of paying one game for the services of Steve Sullivan.

But these the main motive for this move was probably for PR/bargaining reasons for the labor war...sending out the message that teams are having to cut jobs to survive. Why not just hold out for the summer and actually see if there is a lockout? Because it's a PR/bargaining move, and because these people are probably employees with whom the organization is indifferent about (easily replacable) or in some cases, disgruntled about.
