Report: MLB, MLBPA not currently discussing CBA issues

The MLB and MLBPA are currently not really working toward resolving the numerous disagreements they have over the direction of the game.

According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, the league and the players’ association are currently not involved in negotiations, with the current CBA expiring on Dec. 1, 2021.

Obviously, it’s early in the process and there is time. However, there are countless issues that need to be solved, including service time manipulation and the fact that free agency is quickly becoming an experience to avoid for many players. It’s a very bad sign that some players are already forecasting labor strife if things don’t change, and that alone should probably send the two sides to the table in preliminary talks.
