Dodgers fans are beyond ready to see their team back on the field. While fans likely won’t be allowed in stadiums for a while, getting the boys back on our tv’s will have to suffice. MLB and the player’s union have gone back and forth for months, arguing about the financial compensation owed to players.
As it turns out, the players are just as ready to get going as we are. The Dodgers’ Justin Turner took to Instagram last night, posting a video that is sure to get you hyped up for any number of games we get out of baseball.
There’s nothing really special about the video. Heck, there isn’t even any music set to it. But there’s just something so breathtaking about seeing the Dodgers back in action, even if it’s just getting ready for a short season.
MLB’s most recent offer to the player’s union included a 70 percent prorated salary that could bump up to 80 percent should the playoffs be completed entirely. The union stood firm in its stance that the league should have been able to offer 100 percent of the player’s prorated salary as promised in a March agreement. That agreement, according to the league, was contingent on games being played with fans.
The good news is that we will likely have a better idea of what the season looks like by this week, maybe even today. The Player’s Union demanded that the league inform them of their plans by today, though it remains to be seen whether they will follow that. In the meantime, the Dodgers will continue to work and stay ready.
It’s almost time for Dodgers baseball.
