According to Major League Baseball’s team owners, Monday, Feb. 28 was the drop dead date for a new collective bargaining agreement with the players or else the opening of the regular season is going to be delayed.

So, because baseball’s gonna baseball, the owners and MLB’s inept commissioner Rob Manfred failed to come to any sort of agreement with the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA) on Monday.

As a result, the MLBPA announced that since there thus far has been no Spring Training this year they have organized a “fully staffed” stadium and facility for players to train in Mesa, Arizona, reports MLB writer Robert Murray.

Some players, however, appear to have other ideas for playing some baseball this year, and it includes baseball leagues in other countries.

Bryce Harper, for one, sent out a message on social media to Japan’s Yomiuri Giants, writing, “Aye @yomiuri.giants you up? Got some time to kill. I know you got @borascorp number. Let’s talk.”

Think Harper, the 2021 National League MVP, is joking? He might be, but he also has every right to actually go and do it.
