We are reaching the end of what was a pivotal week for baseball in terms of resolving the lockout. Thursday’s meetings between MLB and MLBPA brought no progress, so the two sides will plan to meet again today, for the fifth consecutive day.

The Athletic’s Evan Drellich reports that the only proposals made by the Players Association on Thursday were on service time manipulation and the amateur draft.

The league showed no signs of acceptance after these proposals, which cut the day of meetings short in Jupiter.

We hope for a more promising meeting today, as the February 28th deadline is quickly approaching.
