(© Sean Gladwell –

We may finally be on the verge of a 2020 MLB season.

MLB has sent a proposal to MLBPA for a 60-game season to begin July 19 with players receiving full pro-rated salaries.

That would come to 37 percent of contracted pay for 2020.

Players had been set to earn nearly $4 billion in salaries in 2020 before the COVID-19 shutdown.

The proposal includes an expanded playoff format.

The framework for the deal was hashed out in a meeting on Tuesday between MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred and MLBPA Executive Director Tony Clark.

We’re thisclose to being able to go back to thinking about booing the Houston Astros.
