Good morning Angels fans. There may be a light at the end of the tunnel, although that may just be the Memorial Day BBQ. Have some links with your bacon.
The opening of the MLB season has been up in the air and as we wait, the stuff that leaks make both sides look ugly. Arguments over the agreement in March being based on fans attending is ongoing.
The Union allegedly knew that renegotiation were needed months ago.
MLB is telling the union they need to renegotiate pay(beyond what was already agreed to) or there will be no Baseball until fans can attend games.
MLB owners say they can lose 2 billion dollars if there are no fans even if they do not pay the players. The Union doubts the numbers very much.
MLB and the union met but did not made any economic proposals yet.
MLB plans for no Baseball in December, fears the cancellation of the postseason.

CBS Sports has their “what-if” scenarios for each team (since 2000). I disagree with their choice for us. They picked “what if the Angels signed Greinke instead of Cokehead?”
I’d have chosen one of two. Eddings doesn’t buy Pure#$%ski’s $#$%&^, or Aoki doesn’t blindly catch a fall while falling.
The owners are only doing it this way to make it seem like they are trying. They gave a proposal, and will not budge, or worse, just change the deal. The East coast is shut down for the foreseeable future, and without the NY’s and BOS teams, who cares anyway.
The on field rules they set, no going to the mouth, no spitting, will shut down the game anyway. How are they going to enforce rules like that? Saliva is the backbone of the game.
Take care, be healthy, and take deep breaths.
