Well talks didn't continue so the owners get to impose their schedule...

"spring" training 2.0 starts on July 1
60 games starting the end of July, ending in October
10 team playoffs
full pro-rated salaries for players
no playoff bonuses for players (no fans & those bonuses were figured on gate receipts)
still possible DH for National League (GRRR!!! UGH!!!)
I guess the MLBPA rejected that offer. I don't think we'll see baseball this season.

I'm curious to see how teams will handle in-season injuries - no minor leagues this year, so who gets added to the active roster as a replacement when a player has to go on the injured list? Your AA and AAA guys aren't exactly going to be in game-ready shape...

No. There will be baseball.

Well dang! I didn't believe it! Both sides seemed so far apart just a few days ago. Looks like it's 60 games in 66 days. I'm guessing we'll see some larger starting rotations to try and get the big guys a little more rest?

MLB teams will get to designate a pool of 60 players to choose their active roster from, and the remainder will get to participate in a version of extended spring training to keep them in game-shape for call-ups during the season.
