      Here's hoping they can agree to a 162 game schedule or at least something close. I'm expecting an insane amount of free agent signings and trades in the next 48 hours....

        Per Jesse Rogers, 9 inning double headers and normal extra inning rules are back as well. No more ghost runners.

          It's been reported that a deal today would allow for a 162 game season. They'll add in some double-headers and extend the season by half a week.

                Great, I'm assuming all those who were posting how they were done with baseball will now be returning.

                Let's hope Hahn/KW have been doing their homework and convincing JR this team needs another starting pitcher, right fielder, second baseman, a bullpen arm and a back up catcher in that order.

                We'll see.

                    In the end, I doubt this whole thing has done any real damage to the game. A couple weeks into the season we'll forget all about it.

                        Breakdown of the union voting. For those not aware, there are 38 votes: one vote for each team, plus an 8-member executive committee.

                        The executive committee all voted against the deal, but the team vote went 26-4 in favor. The four teams that voted against were the Mets, Yankees, Cardinals, and Astros. The Mets players in particular were worried about the high tax penalties.

                          What's the point of larger bases? Not being sarcastic; I really don't know why they want to change the size of the bases.

                            I don't get that either, I thought they were thinking of making them thinner to cut down on injuries on that final step to first base.

                              Player safety. It's also supposed to make stealing bases a little easier.
