chances of 2022 being played?

Both sides looked pretty bad last year when they fought over nonsense (from the fans' perspective) when there was a pandemic raging.  I think they'll get it done and play 2022 as scheduled, but it will be ugly.

Manfred set to test out such new in-game events as "who can read Shakespeare the fastest out loud between innings", "No alcohol first inning", "random ticket draw to kick out a person attending the game, with family" and "home runs are limited to 2 per game, the rest are outs" in order to increase fan interest.

the union will turn some of its focus toward “spending and competitive integrity,”

Don't see how this happens as long as teams get to keep all their own local TV revenue.

the players would like to earn more money earlier in their careers – which could mean changes to the current service-time setup.

What if service time got based on when you are drafted? You start making major league minimum X years after being drafted, become arbitration-eligible Y years after being drafted, reach free agency Z years after being drafted.

Quote

On the ownership side, there continues to be a desire to increase the number of playoff teams per season

The problem is that baseball doesn't lend itself to teams having long layoffs due to having a bye. It's hard to find a format for some number of teams between 10 and 16 that doesn't have teams on a bye for too long.

Can't wait for Nightengale's tweets that will be contradicted by other reporters.
