About that TV money...


Will teams receive their broadcast revenues if no games are played?

It’s not entirely clear at this point. It is worth noting that in the event of a strike or lockout, sports leagues often continue collecting television revenue but have to pay it back, usually over multiple years with low interest rates.

If you were wondering...


How much money does this save the owners?

Player salaries were set to total a little more than $4 billion in 2020. With $170 million guaranteed to players, owners potentially save $3.83 billion or more in player salaries if the season is canceled.

Why is that $3.83 billion number significant?

Because it covers teams from lost ticket sales in the event no games are played. An estimated 30 percent of teams’ revenue comes from ticket sales. Per Forbes, Major League Baseball saw $10.7 billion in revenues last year. Thirty percent of $10.7 billion equals $3.21 billion.

If you're wondering why players are eager to play games in front of empty seats...


How are MLB players normally paid?

Players are paid their salaries only during the regular season. They are usually paid every two weeks, although that can vary by club.

How are MLB players being paid this year?

Per the agreement struck by MLB and the MLBPA, owners fronted the players $170 million to cover them through April and May. Beyond then, salaries will be prorated based on the number games scheduled in the abbreviated season. If the season is canceled and no games are played, players will not receive any additional money beyond that initial $170 million.

Will the thresholds to achieve performance bonuses or vesting options be prorated?

Yes. Both the thresholds to achieve performance bonuses or vesting options, and the dollar amounts awarded for reaching them, will be reduced according to the number of games scheduled.

With the old baseball, Peter's projection would have been very close to perfect.
