While no one knows what it will look like, there is still some optimism that we will have an MLB season this summer - whether with fans or not. 

The owners and the players union have been fighting over the past few weeks, as the owners want the players to agree to a 50/50 revenue share agreement - one that would pay the players far less than they're under contract for.

While all of that is going on, no one is sure if the league can even resume because of the coronavirus... 

Do you expect baseball to return this season?

 

Bob Nightengale, Baseball Columnist for USA Today, joined the show to talk about the challenges of returning to baseball, whether we'll have fans in the stands or not, and more:

- Are there too many obstacles in the way to get the league back up and running?

What would be the plan for if a player contracts the virus?

Does he think the players and owners will work something out money wise?

Why are the players opposed to a salary cap in baseball?

How hard will it be to enforce a quarantine and social distance rules on the players on the road?
