    Among the other vital points included in the proposal:

    An expansion of playoff teams from 10 to 14

    An 82-game season

    The use of home stadiums in areas that have local and state governmental approval

    A so-called spring training 2.0 that begins in June with a season set for early July

    A universal designated hitter

    Geographical schedules, in which teams play only in-division opponents and interleague opponents in a similar area (i.e., American League Central teams play only AL Central and National League Central teams)

    A 30-man roster with a taxi squad that would have upward of 50 players available

    Half of the teams making the playoffs? Welcome to the NBA.

    I can't wait for a third or fourth place team to win the World Series.

    Players Union will never agree to this as is.

    And not included in the plan as pointed out by media and players alike.... How they intend to keep the players, families, stadium workers, etc. safe. It's a plan, that has a glaring hole in it.

    especially given one of those underdogs might very well be a team that would just be a team peaking late in a typical full season. how many ws winners were bubble teams to make the playoffs at the break before coming on strong?
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    The union is likely discussing this proposal. I think they would like it, as it allows more players to receive major-league pay and more will get playoff shares.

    If you haven't read this, I recommend it. Pretty sobering that I've put down the amount of money that teams make at the gate as being negligible, and it's 40% of annual revenue. I thought it was a drop in the bucket.

    After reading that, kinda makes me think there won't be a season.

    One hurdle cleared.

    NY and CA both said professional teams can play starting in June, with no fans. As long as following local and federal health guidelines.

    Texas and Michigan as well*

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

    I'm not one who usually sides with billionaire owners.

    But, if this is true, makes the players and union look bad.
