    FROM EARLIER:

    Welp, here we go.

    According to a report from Jeff Passan, “MLBPA player leaders agreed unanimously not to accept MLB's final proposal, and there will be no deal on a new collective-bargaining agreement before MLB's 5 p.m. ET deadline, sources tell ESPN.”

    As previously reported, Major League Baseball has threatened to cancel its March 31 Opening Day if a new deal was not in place by 5 p.m. today.

    Here is what MLBs best and final offer was, according to The Athletic:

    Per MLBPA official, offer includes:

    • Pre-arbitration bonus pool of $30 million, up $5 million from before
    • No change on CBT thresholds (220/220/220/224/230)
    • Minimum salary starting at $700k, going to $740k over course of deal. PA starts $725k

    Major League Baseball is now on the verge of losing regular-season games because of a work stoppage for the first time since the 1995 season.

    Nation, we hate to say it, but it does not seem promising at all that Opening Day will start as planned.
