Hold up. You're telling me that not only did we have to suffer through Game 7 of the 2016 World Series, but baseball may be gone forever in a few days?!
Okay, so baseball probably will still happen next spring, but the Winter Meetings that are set to occur next week may be put on hold if a new CBA can't be reached between the MLB owners and the MLBPA by the time the current CBA expires on December 1st. Ho boy.
I'm sure the internet will be thrilled that the "Dolanz r cheep" yet again. Thankfully, Cleveland doesn't need to make a huge splash this offseason in order to be in a great position in 2017.
The Indians probably won't sign the likes of Dexter Fowler or Ian Desmond, but hey, Michael Bourn and Nick Swisher are available!
Around the League
- The MLBPA is willing to temporarily operate under the current CBA if an agreement is not reached by December 1st, but the owners are threatening a lockout if the current agreement expires without a replacement.
- Unfortunately, Edison Volquez will not be on the Royals next year (he's headed to Miami).
- Torii Hunter (among others) will be headed back to Minnesota as special assistants to the baseball operations department.
