Reports are trickling in that there may actually be a settlement between the owners and the MLBPA. Here is one by Fox Sports' Dave Van Dyck

From Fox Sports.com (http://foxsports.lycos.com/content/view?contentId=641330)

I am getting cautiously optimistic that there will be baseball today.

I don't believe anything I hear with this crap.

When they have a deal, they'll announce it.

I agree. They'll announce a press conference. That's when you'll know.

Take any news of a settlement from management sources with a grain of salt.

Make that a salt mine.

Yeah sure. The Channel 5 sports geek is going to break the settlement news? All he did was pick up the same Fox Sports report you linked to earlier. There is no news here.

Both ESPN and the AP are reporting no deal. Let's at least wait until somebody else independently confirms this?

This article was from 5am, so methinks it ain't accurate.

Fans speaking out have helped this situation IMO. Fans showing how pissed off tehy'd be for a strike has to make the owners and players realize that neither side will make money if the fans boycott is stronger then it was after the 94 strike.

Ha. No one gives a damn about the fans, I'm not even saying that resentfully. There is no reason to worry about the fans when they are negociating how much money they'll have in their pockets.

Well they just showed the Red Sox boarding the Bus to the air port. That must mean something.

I'm glad you understood what I wrote, forgot the word 'have'.

I love it when reporters report their news from sources close to the brother of the source.

Gee,no strike,what a big surprise.Its just been posturing all along.Personally,i wish they had gone on strike.Now is a good time to fix this thing.I would have sold my soul if only they hadn't gone on strike in 94,but,alas,it was not to be.I haven't heard the details but i at least hope the changed something.
