The MLB Players Association has rejected the most recent owners proposal to resume baseball. This isn't entirely surprising given the owners have generally made the same
proposal each time. They seem stuck at asking players to accept a third of their initial pay regardless of the season length.
I have to say I understand where the players are coming from in this arguement. After already agreeing to a pay cut at the onset of the covid outbreak, players have already made concessions to help clubs make ends meet. Now clubs are wanting more concessions as it becomes evident that fans will not be a part of this return to the American past time.
This all means that I'm not anticipating getting my baseball fix in on the Fourth of July. Instead I'm guessing it will be the end of July at best before we see regular season baseball kick off. I'll continue to hope I'm wrong but I'm definitely not going to hold my breathe.
