MLB Gives MLBPA Yet Another “Deadline” for a Full 162 Game Season

Published

on

Monday night, several reports came out that both MLB and MLBPA had a meeting via zoom. During that zoom meeting, MLB gave an offer of a $228 million CBT, with it going up to $238 million by the end of the deal. MLBPA’s last offer was at $238 million, with it being raised to $263 million at the end, according to Evan Drellich of The Athletic.

The plan for Tuesday is for both MLB and MLBPA to meet again. In all their glory, MLB gave yet another deadline for a full 162 game season, full season pay, and service time. For these things to happen, they not only have to agree on them, but MLBPA also has to accept/give an offer worth accepting by Tuesday for all three things to be fulfilled. 

One of the more confusing things with this “deadline,” Drellich put best, “How is 162 games possible with commisoner Rob Manfred canceling the first two series.” We all distinctly remember the “those first two series will not be made up,” quote right? Is this MLB’s way of saying their bluff didn’t work or is it yet another tactic to try and blame the players for a “deadline” not being met? I think we all know the answer.
