OK, if the previous poster was correct that the current pay out rate in MLB is 42% (I thought it was 46%), then the players would receive an immediate 20% raise in MLB. Every player.
Do you honestly believe that the MLB players would not vote for a 20% raise?
Its not that its a cap, its also a guarantee. The NHL deal would guarantee MLB players more than they have ever made before.
I cannot think of anyone, in any profession, that is given the chance to get a 20% raise would not go for it.
