Considering how far apart both sides are after offering up their latest rounds of respective proposals, there’s certainly not much time left to reach an agreement if there will be some semblance of an MLB… More
Tuesday marked the day of another step forward in the realization of an abbreviated 2020 Major League Baseball season.
If you’re a fan who follows the history of the Dodgers closely (or if you’re a fan who personally witnessed the misery of not making the playoffs for a sixth consecutive season), you’ll remember that 2002 was pretty much the year of just two players—outfielder Shawn Green and reliever Eric Gagne.
Another week and we’re not really any closer to knowing if we’re going to see Dodgers baseball this season. On Thursday, the MLBPA delivered its proposal to MLB and word came Friday that MLB will return with its concerns and any possible changes on Tuesday.
The Dodgers on Wednesday were named a finalist for the Sports Humanitarian Team of the Year, as announced by ESPN. The honor comes in recognition of the club’s official charity, the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF).
Just like we said in Sunday’s column, “outlooks on the COVID-19 pandemic sometimes change daily, causing bursts of optimism one day and spurts of pessimism the next.”
For what has felt like months now, we have seemingly been hearing an entirely new proposal almost every week about how the 2020 Major League Baseball season may ultimately be structured.
I had really hoped that by the time my turn to write for this fine little blog again had rolled around, there would actually be something more concrete about the season to discuss. After all, the MLB had said it was sending their proposal to the players’ union early in the week. But there hasn’t been too much chatter about that yet, except for the whole fighting over money thing.
For a quick moment on Monday, there appeared to be some progress towards making the 2020 Major League Baseball season a reality.
If you have already heard the news surrounding the 2020 MLB Amateur Draft, you’ll know that this year’s version will still happen, but it will be cut back to just five rounds, shortening the annual event by a whopping 35 rounds.
In the week since we’ve last spoken, baseball, perhaps, has inched closer to possibly having a season.
