How does MLB’s decision to cancel games affect the Cardinals?

With the league and union unable to strike a deal, the Cardinals’ regular season games began being canceled. Here’s how that affects the schedule so far.

Street. Louis – For the first time in 27 years, Major League Baseball will lose games due to a labor dispute.

With the league’s owners and the MLB Players Association failing to reach an agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement by MLB’s implemented 5 p.m. Tuesday deadline, an annulment is coming.

MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred announced during a press conference that the league had canceled Opening Day and the first two series of the season to reduce the schedule from 162 games to 156 games at most.

Both of these series were home openers for the Pirates and Cubs.

As of now, the team’s home opener against the Pirates on Thursday, April 7th is still in the works, due to a deal between the league and the league.

The Cardinals released a statement regarding the cancellations on Tuesday night:

“We are very disappointed that a working agreement was not reached in time to avoid a delay in the start of the MLB regular season.

The Cardinals are still hopeful that a resolution will be reached in time to prevent any game at Busch Stadium from being affected.

We are continuing to prepare for the tradition-packed home opener on Thursday, April 7, and look forward to starting the season as soon as possible.”

So far, the league and the union have not planned for future negotiations, Manfred said.

After the two teams made progress through 13 negotiation sessions spanning 16-and-a-half hours on Monday, the league sent the players’ association the “best final offer” Tuesday for the ninth consecutive day of negotiations.

The players declined this offer, paving the way for MLB to follow through on its threat to cancel Opening Day.

At 5:10 p.m., Manfred released a statement that many fans have been dreading: nothing to look forward to on Opening Day, usually a spring renewal standard for fans across the country and some in Canada as well.

The ninth shutdown in baseball history would be the fourth to cause regular season games to be canceled.
