As we approach the third full week of the MLB lockout, things are feeling bleak for baseball fans. According to Evan Drellich of The Athletic, the league and the players union have no plans on discussing a new collective bargaining agreement again this year. Or at least the core economics of a new deal, which is the origin of the hold up as it is.
With the important talks tabled, mid-January is now a best-case scenario for the offseason to restart.
For the Dodgers, the sooner the offseason and player movement resumes, the better. So far since the season ended, LA has lost Corey Seager and Max Scherzer and still has key free agents on the market with Clayton Kershaw and Kenley Jansen to name a few. Moreover, there’s a massive void in the starting rotation that could be filled via trade or free agency.
In this new episode of Dodgers Dougout, we discuss the latest updates on the MLB lockout, how it impacts the Dodgers and when to expect the two sides to come to an agreement on a new CBA.
