MLB 2020-21 off season catch all

The key for players to consider approving this proposed amendment to the current CBA agreement would be whether “full pay” is guaranteed (including any increased playoff compensation), even if regular season and or playoff games are cancelled / cannot be held or completed due to COVID or other unforeseen reasons.

Otherwise, the players can just affirm to honor the current existing agreement, which calls for full pay of 162 games and the existing playoff format.

The owners cannot deviate from the current agreement without either obtaining player approval and or violating the collective bargaining agreement and risk possible sanctions or financial penalties if successfully challenged in court.

The players formally agreed last year to give MLB authorization to adjust the schedule as the commissioner saw fit, much to their (and our) detriment. Hopefully they learned from their mistake of trusting ownership to do the right thing.

I kind of hope this happens only to see the meltdown that will happen on White Sox Twitter.

Not sure why it would happen. Our bullpen is probably part of this team I am least worried about.

Why not 162?

I’m guessing just because there wouldn’t be room in the schedule to fit that in once they delay the season like they want to. You can’t go too far into November.

Haven’t paid attention to this angle since last summer... so my guess is owners want to delay so that it’s more likely for in person attendance due to vaccination?

Unless you only played the playoff games in warmer weather areas or domes.

Yeah, that’s my understanding.

Who is realistically left? Mets and Dodgers (always a threat if he is willing to go short term)?

Pedroia probably once thought he could get to 3000 hits someday. 1805. Good career. Joins David Wright in the “what could have been” Hall of Fame.

For him to retire with that much salary left, there has to be some sort of buyout. 

Edit: nevermind. He is still getting paid his salary and it is counting against luxury tax.
