    Per Heyman, MLB and the MLBPA are closing in on an agreement after Manfraud and Tony Clark had a face to face meeting today

    @EvanDrellich


    Source says no deal is close yet between MLB and MLBPA beccause the proposal was just sent by MLB. No agreement even in principle at this point.

    As part of the pending agreement to play the 2020 season between MLB and the players union, the union has agreed to waive any grievance.

    other inside people believe this MLB proposal (60 games, 16 team playoff, full pro rated pay, no grievance) won't end up being what they agree to, MLBPA will counter and it will be somewhere in the middle of that

    Usually when the Dodgers get eliminated in October, I have a solid 2 months where I make tremendous progress in my physical, mental, spiritual, vocational and relational goals. The pointlessness and anti climacticness of the Dodgers always lead to self-reflection about how to make better use of time and how to conquer the things I can control.

    Racist.

    Sounds like the MLBPA did not accept the owners recent proposal and are putting together a counter. This has apparently frustrated the owners... again.

    Jon Heyman looked like a fucking moron yesterday. Seems to be a common theme for many associated with baseball nowadays.

    Wonder why"universal DH" in 2021 is a necessary addition to a year that was shortened by a disease?
    Is it that they have secret info of a comeback of covid, or they just continue to lick taint ?
    And how do pitchers sitting down, not taking part, help this crippled form of bb anyway ?
    One thing it does do, however, it makes Dave Robots a little closer to actually being a ML level manager by taking some decisions away from him.
    Improvement by subtracting ? Sounds like an exercise in anti -climacticness to me...

    The MLBPA wants the DH permanently, they are just throwing it in so they have an easy “win” in the deal. It’s going to be in the next CBA too, guaranteed at this point. I think it’s safe to say we’ve seen our last games without the DH. Most of us knew it was coming, but none of us expected it so soon.

    Isn't it illegal now to be outside in California without a mask? How do you play baseball?

    Covid outbreak at the Phillies camp with at least 8 personnel (5 players, 3 staff) coming down with the virus... that could be it for the season.

    Over 20 players are awaiting test results now. The Blue Jays also had to quarantine a player that displayed symptoms. He had been hanging out with the same players from the Phillies that just went down.

    It’s a wrap. Record high cases in the last couple days and only going to get worse. States loosening up and large gatherings ie. protests will result in even more.

    news cycle flipped to burning buildings and people got comfortable. We even started conversation to get LL games back on track and now I’m sure it will be curbed.

    shitshow
