After Major League Baseball turned down the MLBPA's counterproposal for a 114-game season, the two sides were left back at square one in terms of negotiating.

Sources told and The Athletic about the owners' idea for a shortened season, which was reported after the MLB Players Association on Sunday proposed a 114-game season.

It then appeared team owners are now preparing to make a counter offer of their own, possibly guaranteeing players a full prorated salary, but for a season that would range from 50 to 60 games. "Everyone knows how silly such a short schedule would look, especially with the decks clearing to hold a three-month regular season plus expanded playoffs in October".

Mission: Impossible 7 Might Restart Filming in September
Now theatrical releases are scheduled to start up again in July but for that to happen we'll need to see theaters open. Actor Simon Pegg , who plays Benji Dunn, confirmed the news about the plans to restart the film.

While management has suggested it could play a short regular season of about 50 games with no more salary reductions, it has not formally proposed that concept. The sides agreed to a deal March 26 in which players accepted prorated salaries in exchange for $170 million in advances and a guarantee that if the season is scrapped each player would get 2020 service time matching what the player accrued in 2019.

The players agree that the March 26 agreement the sides forged grants Major League Baseball the right to control the length of the season.

The players' proposal on Sunday included an offer to receive 70.3 percent of their original salaries. On Monday, an ESPN report said that the owners were mulling giving players the full prorated salaries they asked for, but would also include just a 50-game regular season.
