The owner's offer included full pay only if there are no additional cancelations, the players believe that there is a higher chance of cancelled games in a five month season because six months allows for more make up opportunities.

The bought and paid for Biden administration has come out supporting the owners, Biden's people met with the owners last week and strangely enough supported their exact plan. The players skipped the meeting. Biden's team says that there will be more vaccines available in a month so it is better to wait. A ridiculous statement considering the relatively small number of players compared to the economic impact in AZ and FL. Give each team 100 doses, a drop in the bucket compared to the total number available and play ball.

Seven inning double headers and runners on second to start extra innings are being brought back for this season. No decision on the designated hitter yet.

In addition, MLB is looking at deadening the ball this year to cut down on home runs.

Maury Brown is reporting that the early spring games will be five or seven innings and the late spring games will be seven or nine innings, at the manager's discretion. Nice timing to announce this a week after single game tickets went on sale.

I remember when he was a frequent poster here. Still no Portland baseball team 15 years later.

Maury needs to split his personal and work stuff into separate Twitter accounts, he makes the mistake of thinking that because he writes about interesting topics that he himself is interesting.
