Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield The contentious relationship between Major League Baseball owners and players has apparently healed to the point that there is renewed hope the sides can agree on a course for a 2020 season.Commissioner Rob Manfred and Tony Clark, head of the Players’ Assn., met for several hours on Tuesday in Phoenix, and Manfred issued a statement on Wednesday characterizing the talks as productive.“We left that meeting with a jointly developed framework that we agreed could form the basis of an agreement and subject to conversations with our respective constituents,” Manfred said. “I summarized that framework numerous times in the meeting and sent Tony a written summary today. Consistent with our conversations yesterday, I am encouraging the Clubs to move forward and I trust Tony is doing the same.”The offer is for a 60-game season, starting July 19, according to ESPN’s Buster Olney. Players would receive their full pro-rated salaries — which would be about 37 percent of their full-season salary — and there would be expanded playoffs in 2020 and 2021, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. It is possible MLB would have to increase the number of games in their offer to get the players to agree.MLB’s latest proposal also includes implementing the DH in both leagues in 2020 and 2021, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.The news came just two days after Manfred said on ESPN that he was losing confidence in reaching an agreement with the players over the terms of the sport’s return amid the coronavirus pandemic.Compensation was the heart of the issue, with players insisting on receiving their full pro-rated salaries, while owners sought further pay cuts in light of the likelihood of playing games in empty stadiums.On Monday, Manfred said the players had been negotiating in “bad faith” and Clark responded that the players were “disgusted” by Manfred backtracking on his promise from last week that he was “100 percent” certain there would be a season. The two reportedly had a face-to-face meeting in Arizona on Tuesday to help bridge the gap.According to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman, the two sides were “closing in” on an agreement on Wednesday morning. Evan Drellich of The Athletic reported that a new proposal had just been sent from owners, and that there is “no agreement even in principle at this point.”Players would like to receive their full pro-rated salaries for as many games as possible. Players are already losing at least half of their full salaries because the pandemic has already wiped out at least half of the scheduled 162 games.Owners have offered reduced salaries or a shortened schedule of as little as 48 games. Owners could unilaterally impose a schedule, but they would be subject to a grievance from players that they did not make their “best efforts” to schedule as many games as possible.The bridge may have been an expansion of the playoffs. Adding an extra round of postseason play could add significant revenue from television, helping compensate for the lack of fans. The players need to approve any change to the playoff format.Even if the financial and logistical terms are agreed upon, there is still the looming threat of the coronavirus. The virus is still spreading quickly in many states, including California, Arizona, Texas and Florida, states that are home to 10 of the 30 major league teams.Related Articles Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros

I firmly believe that it is essential that we recognize communities and the thousands of volunteers across the island of Ireland that give of themselves selflessly every day. It is clear that working together and getting things done increases peoples’ pride in where they live and in turn helps build vibrant communities. I wish our five community groups all the best in the upcoming awards in Belfast and that they are winners already!”Séamus Neely, CE of Donegal County Council states that “All those nominated epitomise the sense of community spirit that can be seen all across Donegal and the whole of Ireland, with people committed to creating positive civic change in their respective communities.
