I agree. It'll just be a hole and history will look kindly on the players (although it's probably going to be their fault if there's no season) who might not have hit career stats they otherwise would have.
Great article from FiveThirtyEight outlining the finances of MLB in midst of these proposals.
I would like to see what MLB does with a 50 game season. They need ratings, and I have real concerns how further unbalanced the schedule would get in an attempt maneuver the right markets into the playoffs.
I think this belongs in the main thread as no one will see it here. Wes was my favorite player growing up. Saw him at pre-season camp at Ft Meade several times. Also coached the Bullets for a while after retiring. And served as the GM for many years. Sad day for sports fans.
