Wow..this article from ESPN is really detailed and looks like a season could potentially be in real danger. Billionaires vs. Millionaires.

If the season is canceled, that means this would have been the year the Padres won the World Series. I already know this was the year the Aztecs basketball team would have won the NCAA Tournament.

MLB statement

June 13, 2020
Major League Baseball issued the following statement this evening:

“We are disappointed that the MLBPA has chosen not to negotiate in good faith over resumption of play after MLB has made three successive proposals that would provide players, Clubs and our fans with an amicable resolution to a very difficult situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The MLBPA understands that the agreement reached on March 26th was premised on the parties’ mutual understanding that the players would be paid their full salaries only if play resumed in front of fans, and that another negotiation was to take place if Clubs could not generate the billions of dollars of ticket revenue required to pay players. The MLBPA’s position that players are entitled to virtually all the revenue from a 2020 season played without fans is not fair to the thousands of other baseball employees that Clubs and our office are supporting financially during this very difficult 2020 season. We will evaluate the Union’s refusal to adhere to the terms of the March Agreement, and after consulting with ownership, determine the best course to bring baseball back to our fans.”

Nowadays, to be true, the term, "get really ugly," would have to reach a level beyond our solar system.
