In a world where young players are the most productive and teams have responded to that by prioritizing collecting young talent over free agents and putting a competitive product on the field, those are very reasonable proposals. Teams are being run much differently today than they were even 5 years ago. Using the CBA from 5 years ago with a little fiddling around the edges isn't reasonable.You've followed this more closely than I have so here's my question for you - do you really think what I guess were MLBPA's first two proposals were reasonable? Age-based FA, elevated luxury tax, earlier salary arbitration? https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2021/11/mlbpa-makes-second-core-economics-proposal-to-mlb.html. All of those are non-starters to the owners. I mean I'm not saying that players have to be reasonable when the owners are being unreasonable but the players offers' don't strike me as reasonable.
