I'll start this discussion on baseball business by starting the way I start every baseball business discussion: a reminder that MLB has an antitrust exemption that allows them to pay minor-league players non-liveable wages and exploiting their labor, legally.
Jeff Passan of ESPN reported today that at the end of this month the Oakland A's will cease paying their minor leaguers $400/month. Many were quick to note that A's owner John Fisher is worth over $2 billion.
This is maddening. It can't be over-stated how asinine this anti-trust exemption is in 2020.
