    Would guess at minimum the World Series would be played in a neutral site Dome or Warm Weather Location. Heck, maybe the entire playoffs would be that way.

    That said, don't think the Owners will agree to that anyways.

    If they were going to play they would have had to have done a agreement and had a plan weeks ago.

    I think they'll eventually find a way to come together on an 11th hour deal and we get an 80ish game season. July 1st is an extremely aggressive start date though. I don't see how you can best case start Spring Training the 2nd week of June and be playing real games 3 weeks later?

    I am growing even more annoyed than I thought I ever would be. Of course all this bullsh*t would happen the year the Twins have one of their best rosters since Kirby.

    I seriously think the players just don't want to have a season.

    Honestly just no way this season happens. It's too bad too, because there could have been baseball games happening 12 hours a day during a time when people are home more than ever. I could see the lost revenue from this season really dragging out the CBA talks this offseason too. Is it possible no baseball 2 years in a row?

    Yes. Technically, I believe the players have already agreed to let Manfred institute some sort of drastically shortened (~48 games I believe) season. But I think if we get to that point, then the strike starts.

    And there is way more to be worked out now compared to '94 (minor leagues, revenue sharing, salary cap, international draft, etc.) that will most likely take away 2021 also. Very depressing.

    I seriously can't imagine that. I mean the guys who have made 100 million I'm sure are fine. The guys who are getting close to the end or looking for one more big paycheck probably have no chance of getting it.
