Baseball dominates a Thursday edition of STL with Gordon Wittenmyer, Chuck Garfien and Jesse Rogers joining Kap.
The negotiations between the owners and players continue as MLB looks to restart. Rays’ pitcher Blake Snell found himself in some hot water by saying he won’t take a further pay cut to play due to health risks. Do the players have a perception problem?
Later, super agent Scott Boras joins Kap for a lengthy chat. They talk about the negotiations to restart baseball and whether trust issues between the owners and union are playing a role in the talk. He also discusses Kris Bryant’s contract status and whether or not Bryant might have been better off taking an extension instead of waiting for free agency.
