Good morning Angels fans! No deal… yet. Unless there is. Depends on when you read this. Deadline moved to this afternoon, so… cross your fingers! Have some links in the meantime.
As of midnight best coast time, there was still no deal done between the owners and players. It seems to be close, however.
What was the latest proposal anyway? In summary, 12 team playoffs, new rule changes with banned shifts, pitch clock, and larger safer bases, CBT threshold will increase, new CBT threshold tax, and an international draft.
People do seem optimistic that there will be a deal done, and the players and owners were still meeting as I wrote this. Please be the last no baseball update…
Meanwhile, Trevor Bauer, who missed most of last season due to sexual assault allegations, has returned to social media to hate on all media. Yeah, go away.
Pitch clock seems to be coming. Here is how it will speed up baseball.
