    I quite agree. The AL should have started playing real baseball again.

    But to answer the question, there did seem to be some activity a few days ago that piqued the interest of all the sportwriters on Twitter. I forget the exact details tweeted, but owners were willing to give in on two huge things the PA wanted, and the PA was willing to forget two of their things.... there was still a screaming match but the two sides said they wanted to meet again the next day. So it sounds promising that the season won't be shortened.

    When you negotiate against a deadline nothing happens until the last 12 hours.

    Figure out when MLB has to start refunding money on its television contracts and you'll know what the deadline is.
    MLB Network (well, the former players on the network) did some rough math back in December, and said to take opening day, subtract three weeks to get "into game shape / abbreviated spring training," and then subtract another couple of days to make sure deals get in place and to recall players from their homes...

    So... first week of March roughly.
