Well, friends, it certainly got shaky there for a bit, and I don’t mind telling you I wasn’t sure if we would see baseball at all this year. But as the owners have moved to impose a roughly 60-game season, it looks like we’re all going to get our wish.

As long as we ignore the ill-will this will foster going into the post-2021 CBA negotiations, of course.
