Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo would be willing to sacrifice some money if it meant making Major League Baseball’s regular season shorter.

During a Tuesday appearance on Chicago’s ESPN 1000, Rizzo had this to say about possibly playing fewer games in a season. 

“I think we play too much baseball,” Rizzo said, via ESPN’s Jesse Rogers. “Yes, guys are going to take pay cuts. But are we playing this game for the money or do we love this game? I know it’s both, but in the long run it will make everything better.”
