Hours ahead of the MLB All-Star Game, commissioner Rob Manfred found himself in some hot water among proponents for increased benefits for minor league baseball players.

On Tuesday afternoon, when discussing the topic of minor league players’ salaries, Manfred said, “I kind of reject the premise of the question that minor league players are not paid a living wage.”

Not only did the commissioner’s comments draw the ire of some people on social media, but the words drew a quick, fiery response from Advocates for Minor Leaguers Executive Director Harry Marino as well.
