4 OWNERS (NOT THE PHILS) STAND IN WAY OF MLB SETTLEMENT!

By Sam Bush

Evan Drellich of The Athletic reports that four owners were not in favor of MLB increasing the luxury tax increase to $220 million:

Bob Castellini of the Reds, Chris Ilitch of the Tigers, Ken Kendrick of the Diamondbacks and Arte Moreno of the Angels.

Drellich also writes that the owners proposed including player meal money in calculation of luxury tax, and that “irked” the players.

After a brief moment of hope for a deal on Sunday night — real or not — there hasn’t been much that suggests a deal is near since, and Drellich notes that generally industry sources are “not optimistic” about the season starting in April.
