Hello folks! Sadly, baseball appears no closer to returning after yesterday, in which both MLB and MLBPA voiced their disdain over the other side’s demands. Hopefully we see some movement soon. Here’s what all you need to know today.

In Mariners news...

  • This is great news.

Around the league...

  • Max Scherzer joined the league of players speaking out against MLB’s latest proposal for the resumption of baseball. But as someone who holds a position of leadership among the Players’ Association, Scherzer’s comment is given a lot more weight.
  • It’s not necessarily a counter offer, but negotiations will continue.
  • I remember the days when Gio Gonzalez was a discount ace in the sport.
  • Again, this is going to get really ugly in legal terms.
  • If you’re ready for a heavy, but extremely well-written story, check out John Barr, Mike Farrell, and Brian Rivera’s article on ESPN about Roy Halladay and addiction.
  • I also wonder if the universal DH is a done deal in baseball permanently.
