Chip and Cern Show

Feb 21, 2019

Due to several big-time free agents still unsigned, some MLB players are talking players strike. Chip and Cern dig little into what started the 1994 MLB Strike. Chip and Cern review the Adam Wainwright clip where he is talking about a strike. Find out who is still unsigned, how much are they making and some Giants salary talk on this episode of the Chip and Cern Show. 
Bryce Harper and Manny Machado are the two biggest free agents that are yet to be signed and many think that owners are colluding against these big players and their contracts. 
Chip has some tips on how to get the strike does not look like some money grab. 
Chip and Cern learn up about what caused the 1994 strike and how it affected the game after that. 
Chip just starts reading off some stats from the 1994 strike-shortened season. 
Cern has a great point in saying the game of baseball isn’t ready for a strike. Attendance is down, and the game is tough to keep up with, so a strike isn’t a good one to take for the MLB.
