After four straight days of meetings in Florida, fans are getting no closer to seeing a baseball season start on time. By all accounts, MLB club owners and the players union remain far apart in several key areas of the ongoing collective bargaining agreement negotiations.

Yesterday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic summarized it this way…

“But the owners’ strategy from the start was to squeeze the union until regular-season games were in jeopardy, all the while recoiling in disgust when the player-serfs rejected their crumbs and refused to view them as benevolent despots.”

The owners are getting what they want in this back and forth it seems. And players have had enough.
