MLBPA Blamed Media For Agents Remark on Striking

So the MLBPA is blaming the media on this one? I love calling out the Main Stream Media on stuff they do, but this one is on deGrom, Cespedes, and Syndergaard’s agent. How about this Free agent class isn’t strong and no one wants to pay outrageous money for “good” players when they can pay outrageous money for better to elite players next year?

From the NY Post

“No, the players won’t be boycotting spring training, the Players Association clarified in a statement, refuting the words of its own star agent Brodie Van Wagenen.

“Recent press reports have erroneously suggested that the Players Association has threatened a ‘boycott’ of spring training,” the statement read. “Those reports are false. No such threat has been made, nor has the union recommended such a course of action.”

It was Van Wagenen of CAA who wrote last week, in a statement on Twitter: “A boycott of Spring Training may be a starting point, if behavior doesn’t change.”
