At the rate they are going they could have a deadline of June 1 to play any games and I wouldn't have any confidence in them at reaching that deadline either.

My guess would be the same as it always is: MONEY

I love baseball, but watching billionaires battling millionaires over a couple dollars really isn't a good look at all. MLB lost a good chunk of fan base in '94 and I think this would be a lot worse.
There's already debate about how MLB is on the sports landscape in the US: Obviously football and basketball are higher, auto racing is probably higher now, possibly hockey. There's a very likely chance MLB falls to about 7th or 8th on the totem poll behind auto racing, hockey, golf and soccer if the season can't start on time.
Man, you and I are lockstep on this. I feel like we're watching the movie Wall Street. Greed is Good (at least according to the parties involved here).

JUPITER, Fla. — Major League Baseball said Wednesday that the 2022 season will be shortened if no labor agreement has been reached by the end of Monday. Management had maintained that was the deadline for a deal that would allow the season to start as scheduled on March 31. Players have not said whether they accept that timeframe, and there remains a sense both sides are awaiting more time pressure to force more major moves by the other.

The declaration from MLB came after another day of minor moves. Major League Baseball’s only new offer to players Wednesday was to increase the minimum salary by an additional $10,000 a year.

MLB upped its proposed minimum for this year to $640,000, with the figure rising by $10,000 in each additional season of a five-year agreement.

Players have asked for $775,000 in 2022, with $30,000 jumps each season.

There appeared to be little or no movement on the key issue of luxury tax thresholds and rates, or the size of the bonus pool for pre-arbitration players
710 with a 20 jump, and call it a day.....?

I started typing this out the other night and abandoned it.. but.. Remember.. MiLB will be unaffected by the lockout.


Go support your local minor league team. You'll see players who are playing because they enjoy it.. They try harder.. And they'll be playing.

At this point the Federal government needs to step in, force an arbitrated settlement and if the two sides don't play ball then the Federal government will remove the exemption to anti-trust laws that baseball has enjoyed for generations. Either play ball or go the hell home.

I'm going to assume you're misreading something about regular season games being cancelled, since they had set the deadline to avoid losing regular season games at March 1 but no regular season games have been cancelled yet. They're pretty obviously not going to cancel the whole season at this point.
