Major league owners willing to move on wage concessions - but over much shorter season

Extending the regular season through October would mean the Twins would not be able to schedule any playoff games at Target Field, where the average high temperature in November is 44 degrees.

Major League Baseball, unable so far to find any points of agreement with its players about conducting a 2020 season, has reportedly begun considering a worst-case scenario. And the good news is that nuclear option isn't cancellation; it's actually playing regular-season games.

Just not many.

According to a report on ESPN, MLB owners have discussed conceding the players' central point - that agreeing to prorate their salaries on a per-game basis is enough of a financial rollback to allow a season to proceed. The wrinkle: Team owners, who insist they will lose a significant amount of money for every game played without fans in the ballpark, want that season to last "in the neighborhood of 50 regular-season games," according to the report.
