Craig Edwards | FanGraphs: MLB owners have agreed on a proposal to begin the 2020 season, and they will be negotiating this proposal with the MLBPA on Tuesday. Part of this proposal includes a revenue sharing plan which Tony Clark has called a non-starter. As Craig Edwards lays out, a revenue sharing program would be asking players to further shoulder the losses this season when they are the ones already risking their health and taking a prorated salary to do so.

Enrique Rojas | ESPN: It was far enough out to think that the World Baseball Classic could go on as plan, but sources told ESPN Deportes on Monday that the tournament will be canceled. The worst part is that it’s unlikely the WBC could be held before 2023.

Rob Mains | Baseball Prospectus $: When/if the season gets underway, it will likely be around 80 games. Rob Mains took the initiative to see who the record holders are in shortened seasons.
