    I guess they really wanted the grievance. But I see a very real possibility of a work-stoppage in 2022 barring some unforeseen forces getting involved here. Manfred and Clark are not the right people to be leading their respective groups at this time.

    Manfred doesn't care if players get infected.

    This is going to suck so much when we lose the 2022 season thanks to a strike

    The Major League Baseball Players Association has agreed to report to training camps by July 1 and play a 60-game season, sources tell ESPN, but deal is not finalized yet.

    One last health-and-safety hurdle to get over and Major League Baseball will be back a week from tomorrow.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    The deal is done between the MLBPA and MLB on health and safety protocols.

    Game on

    "The universal designated hitter likely will remain in place, as it's part of the health and safety protocol."

    Here are some key points:
    • Teams will open the season with a 30-man active roster; it will be reduced to 28 players after two weeks, then to 26 after four weeks.
    • The Trade Deadline will be Aug. 31.
    • To be eligible for the postseason, a player must be added to the Major League roster by Sept. 15.
    • Teams will be permitted to carry up to three taxi-squad players on the road during the season, though if a team carries three such players, one must be a catcher.
    • During extra-inning games in the regular season, each half-inning will begin with a runner on second base. The batter who made the final out in the previous inning (or a pinch-runner for that batter) would be that runner.
    • There will be a 10-day injured list for both pitchers and hitters, though the 60-day IL will be reduced to a 45-day IL.
    • There will be a separate IL for players who either test positive or have symptoms/confirmed exposure to COVID-19. There is no maximum or minimum days for this IL.
    • MLB’s transaction freeze, which has been in place since the season was suspended, will end on Friday at 12 p.m. ET.
    • In addition to COVID-19 testing every other day, some other health precautions are as follows: Team personnel and players not likely to participate in the game (for example, the next day's starting pitcher) will be sitting in the stands or another area designated by the club, at least six feet apart; non-playing personnel will wear masks in dugout and bullpen at all times; no spitting or chewing tobacco (gum is permitted); no celebratory contact (high-fives, fist bumps, hugs, etc.).

    Some of the biggest spikes in COVID-19 right now are occurring in Arizona, Texas, and Florida. So much for that three division plan.

    am I reading that all games will be east vs east, west vs west, etc? so each team will only play 7-9 teams until the playoffs?
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    did prior suspensions get adjusted at all? whose seasons are severely shortened or eliminated by a 60 game season? I know the Twins' Pineda would miss much of the season
