With the MLB lockout hitting Day Number 68 and the MLBPA rejecting the league’s offer at a third-party federal mediator, Labor Secretary Marty Walsh has offered to get involved in an effort to end the lockout.
The owners will meet today, tomorrow, and Thursday in Orlando, which could lead to some update proposal by week’s end.
Andrew Miller discussed where things currently are with the lockout.
This Date in Mets History
The Mets brought Todd Zeile home on this date in 2004. It was his second stint with the club, and the final season of his major league career. The first baseman went on to hit a home run in his final at-bat, and he returned to the Mets’ family on SNY.
