Barring a Miracle, There May be No MLB This Year
Will we have a MLB 2020 season? It's not looking good, and I'm sick of talking about it.
The news changes everyday about a potential 2020 MLB season, and the latest news is all bad. MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred latest comment on a possible season was that he is, "not confident" there will be a 2020 baseball season and that "as long as there's no dialogue" with the MLB Players Association, "that real risk is going to continue."
That's a complete 180 from what he said last week when he said, "unequivocally, we are going to play Major League Baseball this year" and pegged the likelihood at "100 percent."
What a difference a week makes.
At this point, things could change again but I'm starting to doubt it. Players are worried about the risk of playing and not being financially compensated, and the owners want the players to take a pay cut.
Blame the players, blame the owners, blame whoever, but it's us fans who suffer, and it seems like our suffering doesn't mean squat to those in charge of getting us an MLB season.
I'm done with it. Strike Three, You're OUT!
