It’s pretty clear that Major League Baseball players have had it with owners and executives telling them to adjust their contractual and financial expectations on the open market.

On Monday, Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander sent several tweets critical of the state of free agency and calling out the amount of tanking teams who are cutting payroll but keeping ticket prices the same in an environment where MLB revenues are higher than ever. That elicited a response from David Samson, who served as president of the Miami Marlins from 2002 through 2017, suggesting that players need to adapt to the fact that the market isn’t paying as much as it used to.
