Depending on who and what you read (and believe), Major League Baseball could be a step closer to forging a path ahead for a 2020 after all following Wednesday’s meeting between Commissioner Rob Manfred and MLBPA Executive Director Tony Clark. While some reports state that the two did not make significant progress, there are others that do claim otherwise.
Some go as far as saying that real ground has been made up, though it does seem unlikely given its ‘overnight’ nature. As for the details, it looks like the owners have once again made an offer, this time for a 60-game season that would be fully pro-rated to the players’ original salary. On top of that, some are making claims that as many as 16 teams could be included in a one-off, expanded edition of the playoffs. That seems a little bit like overkill, but you never know, and that could be the thing that gets the players to ultimately decide to do it. We shall see, once more.
