MLBPA Unanimously Rejects MLB's Final CBA; First 2 Series Of Season Canceled

March 1

The MLBPA has unanimously rejected the MLB’s final CBA proposal, and the first two series of the season have been canceled, per ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

After rumors were spreading that talks had been advancing on Monday night, this is a major step backward in baseball’s hopes of getting a season underway any time soon. The two sides failed to reach an agreement by Tuesday’s 5:00 p.m. deadline, and based on commissioner Rob Manfred’s comments following the meetings, it didn’t sound like discussions were trending in the right direction. Manfred went on to say that he is fully willing to cancel regular-season games.

This may mark the second time in three years that the MLB has not played an entire season after the 2020 campaign was shortened due to the spread of COVID-19. Reports on further talks will be something to monitor in the coming days.
