Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but… baseball is on track to be back. Again.
After what seems like endless back and forth negotiations, the owners voted today to implement the season and the March 26th agreement. At this point, that means MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred gets to set a schedule and ask the players if they can return to Spring Training by July 1st and if they agree to the health and safety guidelines.
I know I’m not the only one that needs this broken down as simply as possible and can’t seem to keep all the numbers and deals and inches we’ve watched both sides give and take over the past few months. I’m not overstating the issue for myself when I say that I do not feel smarter than a 5th grader at this stage of their dealings. Luckily if you are like, our pal Pat McAfee was here to help us out and put it as plainly as possible.
So, much like the copy of Justin Timberlake’s album 20/20 that I have on vinyl that constantly skips for some reason unbeknownst to me, we hope to hear big news from baseball tomorrow when the players have to decide if they’ll show up “Where and When” Manfred has scheduled them to play.
Does anyone care at this point if the season starts again? Will they even make it through 50-60 games? Can they play a full season without players testing positive? How does the fact that they didn’t go through with the Florida and Arizona plan help with the former question? Especially seeing as how they are two of the current biggest hot spots?
I don’t have the answers. But for the sake of what little sanity I have left these days, I hope and pray that tomorrow is the day that baseball finally stops jerking me around and just commits one way or another.
