7. Health Waiver
Manfred is also willing to put MLB players’ lives at risk. This isn’t an exaggeration because MLB is so unwilling to spend money that it wants players to assume the risk of essentially playing without proper testing. Contrast that to the bubble system the NFL plans to use.
Instead, MLB will choose not to test players regularly and proposes that players sign a health waiver to defer blame if they get sick. Remember, many coaches fall into the at-risk bracket, not to mention family members. So as well as taking away their money, he wants them to risk their health. For this and many other reasons, Manfred has to go.
