Still Negotiating

In their latest proposal toward Major League owner, players have put forth an 89-game regular season while remaining adamant that they receiver full prorated salaries. The proposal by the players’ association was given to M-LB electronically without a negotiating session. The latest proposal comes one day after management cut its proposed schedule from 82 games to 76. The union accepted M-L-B’s plan to expand the postseason from 10 teams to as many as 16. However, if management announces a schedule without an agreement, it would not be able to alter the established postseason format. The players’ plan would have the World Series end in mid-to-late November, and players said they would accept M-L-B’s proposal to have the ability to shift postseason games to neutral sites.
