    This will have to be it as far as negotiations goes...

    It already the last week of June, so if they vote against the 60, then it either the 50 game season or nothing

    Players are expected to reject the offer per Joel Sherman

    So if players reject what would you do in Manfredís shoes ?

    Impose a 50 game schedule or announce that the season is canceled ?

    He has the power to do both

    At this point, with such little time remaining to have a 50-60 game season and with other factors going in, Iím expecting the season to be cancelled.

    Yeah, there wonít be a season is my feeling. It is 22nd of June, there would need to be at least 2-3 weeks of spring training and with any spring training starting in 2 weeks from any official season relaunch, we are talking about a beginning of August ďopening dayĒ. What is the point?

    I donít feel that way with say the NBA coming back for 8 regular season games and 22 of the 30 teams but Baseball is Baseball, a sport where 162 games is viewed as very much needed. 50 or 60 games works in the NBA or Hockey, it doesnít with Baseball. It wouldnít be an interesting season at all.

    Nightingale (FWIW), says there will be a 54-60 game season implemented by Manfred.

    95% sure they won't have a deal if the owners insist on now allowing the players to file a grievance. Rob will mandate a season, the players will play but file a grievance.

    They're saying they're willing to play 10 fewer games as long as they can file a grievance and win more money back that way.

    Being reported the vote will likely fail. FWIW, Happ will vote "yes" to the 60 games as the Cubs player rep.

    What the season will likely look like in the event of a Manfred implemented season:

    Also, not a "report" but a guess...John Sickles does not think a season will happen either way with Covid. Worries about the NFL as well.
