MLB’s push for federal mediation could be ‘win-win’ PR play for owners, source says

Feb 3, 2022

As one player agent surmised, Major League Baseball’s push for federal mediation in collective bargaining talks is a “win-win” for the commissioner’s office, even if MLB knows the players are unlikely to sign on for the process.

The league is positioning its move as earnest.

“What couldn’t be positive about bringing in an experienced and positive neutral mediator?” said a league source.
