Hello and happy Monday. And happy February.
MLB and the player’s union have been a bit at odds this offseason as to what to do with the upcoming season. And on Friday, according to numerous reports, the league officially presented an offer for an altered season: slightly shorter, starting later, with expanded postseason and a universal designated hitter.
MLB on Friday proposed to the union a 154-game schedule with full pay, delayed by a month and extended by a week, sources say. Also, with expanded postseason. Union considering.— Tim Brown (@TBrownYahoo) January 31, 2021
Yes, heard what @TBrownYahoo is reporting here. The universal DH was also part of this offer. Reg season would begin likely in late April. Also heard union had a player call Saturday to discuss this. https://t.co/2rkrb8mdHs— Joel Sherman (@Joelsherman1) January 31, 2021
It seems like the union is unlikely to accept the offer, but perhaps they’ll counter with some variation of it.
Union has not yet rejected MLB's latest proposal, however it is advising players to plan for on-time spring training and regular season. So.— Tim Brown (@TBrownYahoo) January 31, 2021
Baseball will be played in some capacity, which means we’re inching ever closer to San Francisco Giants baseball. We just have no idea when it will be or what kind of baseball it will be.
Also this proposal is bad.

Have a great Monday, friends.
