Baseball fans are not happy with MLB commissioner Rob Manfred right now.

Less than a week after declaring “unequivocally we are going to play Major League Baseball this year.”, Manfred has since backtracked and is now saying he’s not confident there will be a 2020 baseball season while negotiations with players have hit an impasse.

Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred told ESPN on Monday he’s “not confident” there will be a 2020 baseball season and that “as long as there’s no dialogue” with the MLB Players Association, “that real risk is going to continue.”

“I’m not confident. I think there’s real risk; and as long as there’s no dialogue, that real risk is gonna continue,” Manfred said when asked if he was confident there would be a season.

It’s just a disaster for our game, absolutely no question about it. It shouldn’t be happening, and it’s important that we find a way to get past it and get the game back on the field for the benefit of our fans.”

Manfred’s comments didn’t go over well with baseball fans who have currently run out of patience with MLB owners.
