MLB Insider Reveals Teams Voted Against New MLB CBA

Although players from 26 MLB teams voted to pass the CBA and end the MLB lockdown, there were four notable franchises that voted against the latest proposal.

After three months of lockdown, the MLB CBA may have finally passed, but that doesn’t mean all parties are satisfied with the outcome.

According to MLB insider Ken Rosenthal, the CBA bill was passed with 26 teams voting by 4 and 4 teams voting against. The four teams are New York Metsthe New York Yankeesthe Houston Astros and The Cardinals of St. Louis.

Baseball is back, but not every MLB team votes to close the game

Jon Heyman recorded the votes on Twitter, demonstrating that a majority of player representatives voted against the union’s executive council.

These votes go against the eight MLB players who make up the MLBPA Executive Boardthose are Andrew Miller, Max Scherzer, Francisco Lindor, Marcus Semien, Zack Britton, James Paxton, Jason Castro and Gerrit Cole.

Considering the eight players who are spearheading the MLBPA effort and who unanimously voted against the latest CBA measure, it’s clear why these four teams voted against it: because the MLBPA federation’s executive board plays on most all of these teams. Scherzer and Lindor play with the Mets, Miller most recently play with the Cardinals, Castro play with the Astros, and Britton and Cole play with the Yankees. Paxton also spent two seasons with the Yankees in 2019 and 2020.

Apparently, the MLBPA union executive board pulled into their locker room and relationships deepened, because these four teams were the only ones who sided with the council when the MLB lockdown ended. While Heyman argues that the alliance still has “a very good deal“, MLBPA union leaders and the teams they represent want more before the conversations end for at least a decade.
