OT Players association to monitor MLB Marlins payroll after purge

http://www.tsn.ca/mlb/story/?id=409925

Quote:
The players' association will monitor the Miami Marlins following their payroll purge, saying it is too early to determine whether the salary cuts will cause any issues under baseball's labour contract.

After complaints by the union that the Marlins weren't using revenue-sharing money to improve, the players' association, Major League Baseball and the Marlins reached a three-year agreement in January 2010 that the team would increase payroll annually as it prepared to move into its new ballpark in 2012.

After opening last season with a $112 million payroll, the Marlins cut it to $90 million by the end of the season. With the trade of All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes and four others to Toronto on Tuesday, Miami's payroll next season projects to be around $36 million.
...
Baseball's labour contract requires that revenue-sharing money be used by a team "in an effort to improve its performance on the field." If a team's payroll in a year is less than 125 per cent of its revenue- sharing receipts, the burden to show compliance would shift to the team in a grievance.

One of the most bizarre things to have ever happened in pro sports...although the Red Sox pulled off a doozey last season also....

Owners in all of pro sports need to look at the Oakland A's and how they have been doing it for years...money ball...

Owners need to have their GM's spend more wisely, end of story...let the Yankess etc do whatever they want...

The PA has complained about the Marlin lack of payroll before.

Loria is the kind of owner that is a disgrace to sports.

I'm amazed they hadn't filed a grievance against the Marlins already.

So are they making the argument that if they aren't spending money they aren't trying to improve or that they simply shipped off too much without adding too much salary in the meantime?
