MLB News: A Look at the Latest Numbers from the CBA Talks

Representatives from MLB and the MLBPA met on Sunday in an attempt to get the CBA negotiations back on track. According to a report from ESPN Jesse Rogers, the two sides are still relatively far apart on two key topics – even after Sunday.

Jon Heyman indicated that MLB is not likely to agree to the MLBPA’s “CBT request” and that the talks surround the league’s de facto salary cap could be a leading cause for the lockout to continue.

In addition the CBT and pre-arbitration bonus pool, discussion surround rules changes have suddenly become more prominent in the negotiations.

ESPN’s Jesse Rogers and Buster Olney both noted on Saturday how playoff expansion has become a more front-and-center topic during the bargaining sessions.

  1. These tiny implemental concessions from both sides are ridiculous, and at this pace, it’ll take another month or two to come to the middle ground it surely will end up at. The players were dumb not to accept the help of a mediator, which the owners offered weeks before games got cancelled. When you run the numbers, the difference in dollars between the sides is not really that significant in the context of a $10B industry. The money both sides are losing by cancelling games will soon excede anything they are bargaining for, turning this fiasco into a lose-lose outcome. A mediator could have helped wrap this up weeks ago.
