Baltimore Orioles: MLBPA rejects delayed and shortened season

It appears that Baltimore Orioles baseball will be returning in 2021 at the previously prescribed moment. Last night the MLBPA rejected MLB’s proposal of a 154-game season, starting roughly a month later than scheduled. The proposal also included expanded playoffs, universal use of the DH, and the players being paid based on 162 games.

In my view this is the best outcome in general. I personally don’t see how delaying the start of the season would do anything in regards to COVID. As of now, camps are set to begin on February 17th. Opening Day is set for April 1st. Teams are being instructed by the league to prepare to get things going based on that original schedule. And again, I see that as a good thing.
