MLB owners and players appear set to engage in a heated fight about a potential 2020 season. The owners made their proposal Monday and the players are expected to respond Tuesday.
All fans want are games to watch during a time of quarantine. The situation is obviously complex, and it will not be a simple return to play. Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Trevor Williams brought some humor to the situation with a tweet sent out Monday afternoon.
Amidst reports emerging that our union and owners will discuss the proposal tomorrow, here are my thoughts as a player with a young family: pic.twitter.com/qiOl5HlaOd

What we have here is a fake rom-com review with no clarity on the actual situation. Lighthearted, but still a bummer for fans wanting some answers. What Williams may be revealing here is that the players are not too excited about the proposal from the owners.
Major League Baseball owners plan to start a short season in July, multiple outlets say. Health officials and the players’ union haven’t yet agreed. https://t.co/5rCoLRrYoy

Williams’ fun tweet may be quickly overridden with drama emerging between the owners and the players. The jokes will likely end once that entire frustrating process begins this week.
