Bryce Harper Comments on Blake Snell’s Comments: ‘He’s Not Wrong’
The Major League baseball season appears to be heading to a early July return with teams playing in empty stadiums, with a reduced schedule and other changes to the season we are all used to seeing.
However, not all players are thrilled about the potential of returning under the potential financial guidelines. Tampa Bay Rays pitcher, Blake Snell, the 2018 AL Cy Young Award winner, said in a video on Twitch on Wednesday that he's leaning toward not playing this season because the risk of contracting COVID-19.
“Y’all gotta understand, man, for me to go, for me to take a pay cut is not happening, because the risk is through the roof," Snell said.
"What did Snell say on that stream earlier, do you know?" Harper asked while playing Fortnite on Twitch.
When he was relayed what Snell said by Phillies minor leaguer Bryson Stott, who was also on the Twitch stream, Harper seemed to agree with the Rays lefty.
"He ain't lying," Harper said. "He's speaking the truth, I ain't mad at him. Somebody's got to say it, at least he manned up and said it."
