Not wanting to be a debbie downer, but I have no warm fuzzies that they find a compromise.

I’ll have a hard time justifying spending any time, let alone money, on the sport if they can’t reach an agreement on a season. It would be a travesty and a death sentence for MLB as we know it. No reason to assign any blame either, it doesn’t matter. Myself and countless other fans will be lost. Will I go so far as to say I’ll be lost forever? No I love the sport too much, but boy is it broken right now.

There should be plenty of other sports to watch this summer.

Yeah I’ll pretty much be done if there’s no season. I’ll check in occasionally but between this and the “three true outcomes” style of play I’m not very interested in MLB. 
 

On the bright side, NBA got their act together and will be doing it right.

Play whatever length season MLB wants using minor league players.  Ownership are the employers, players are the employees.  Baseball's salary structure is already way too expensive ... and it's going to take a couple of years to get butts back in the seats.  There is no Ripken streak to rally around this time.

Sports just exposed itself as insignificant group of people (population wise), making huge amounts of $$$, (both owners and players), that can't come together to at least give the public a bit of relief from all the all that plagues this country at this time. Shame on these selfish, ego-maniacs...F them all. Bring on curling...losers buy pints.

Still a two to three weeks away from that, but they'll need something by the end of June at the very latest.   

This is probably hardline negotiation tactic.   

But the owners are not going to want to play a season if they can't make money. 

In 2015 tickets and concessions accounts for about 37% of revenue for a typical MLB team according to http://camdendepot.blogspot.com/2016/01/where-mlb-receives-its-revenue.html  They play with no fans and that revenue is now 0%, they will only have TV money.  Maybe players owners split the difference - players take a 15% paycut for this season only,  and also prorated prorated over 82 games, contigent on  fans not being allowed back into the stadium.  Effectively a  57.5% paycut.   If ballparks are allowed to reopen, they get that 15% back.

I wish I liked other sports the same way I love baseball. But I don’t. November through February are barren months for me as a fan.

I'm the same.   I only care about MLB and a very little about college football.  The rest could shut down forever and wouldn't phase me a bit.
