Manfred made the announcement on Tuesday afternoon following days of negotiation talks in Florida ... telling reporters, "I am going to cancel some regular-season games."
"We worked hard to avoid an outcome that's bad for our fans, bad for our players, and bad for our clubs," Manfred said.
Manfred said both the league and its players worked tirelessly over the last week to try to get a deal done in order to avoid this outcome and he said the MLB provided a proposal that he believed was more than fair. Lot of players and fans had opinions on Rob Manfred making that announcement today that games will be canceled.
