MLB Players Association Now Proposing 70-Game Season

Round and round we go, as Stephen Pearcy once sang.

After a Wednesday shit show in which Jon Heyman jumped the gun in reporting that baseball was returning, we’re back at it today with news from Jeff Passan that the union is countering with a 70-game proposal:

At this point both sides should just agree on 65 or 66 games and sign the damn papers. It’s like they’re trying to “win” the negotiation instead of finding a framework that’s suitable for both sides, which is why we call it collective bargaining in the first place.

Fun fact:

The RATT song I mentioned in the lede re-entered the Billboard top 20 for the first time since 1984, thanks to the Geico commercial currently making the rounds:

I knew right from the beginning
That you would end up winnin’
I knew right from the start
You’d put a DH through my heart

Round and round
With baseball we’ll find a way just give it time
Round and round
What comes around goes around
I’ll tell you why
