Published:

At this point in the process, the MLB owners and players don’t even know if they’re still negotiating or not. The owners thought they had an agreement in place yesterday when Rob Manfred and Tony Clark came through with a deal that seemed to work well for both sides, with the owners giving in much more on the salary side. The players took it as negotiations, even though last week they said they were done negotiating.

Here’s the first tweet from Jon Heyman, then all of the details that followed:

Remember that these are the two sides that are going to negotiate a new Collective Bargaining Agreement after the 2021 season. That should be every bit as fun as these talks have been.

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball. When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.
