MLB 2020 season: MLBPA votes against 60-game proposal; Rob Manfred likely to implement schedule |
The players voted 33-5 against MLB's 60-game proposal
On Monday evening, the MLB Players Association voted to reject Major League Baseball's proposal for a 2020 season, according to CBS Sports HQ's Jim Bowden. The proposal called for, among other things, a 60-game season, an expanded postseason, and no additional salary guarantees should the season be canceled due to the novel coronavirus.
The vote -- which featured one MLBPA representative per team and eight members of the union's executive committee -- was 33-5 against the proposal, Bowden confirmed.
The MLBPA released a statement Monday evening implying it was done negotiating with the league over the specifics of a return-to-play plan.
Of course it would be asking too much for the two sides to reach an agreement, and for one to be implemented from previous negotiations. Im in a bunch of fantasy leagues but id be fine with them just shutting it all down, and the 2021 season may be more of the same with the players and owners, My suggestion is that they shut the whole damn thing down permanently. Baseball hasnt been the same since Junior retired, he had the sweetest swing in the history of the game.
