In the tennis match between Major League Baseball team owners and players, the players’ union volleyed back a counter-proposal for a 2020 season that includes more games on the schedule and prorated salaries. And… the owners are almost certain to turn it down.
So as I said to Pat Ryan on WISE Sports Radio, this doesn’t change my opinion that we won’t have a baseball season this year. The shame is that the stalemate is over money and not COVID-19 safety concerns.
I misunderstood and misspoke when Pat asked me if this “strengthened my position” on no baseball season. Sometimes, you’re just too eager to speak your piece and maybe don’t listen as closely as you should. Always room for improvement!
