Just after two days on March 2, the lockout will be three years old in Major League Baseball. And even now, both the owners and the players have not agreed to the new collective bargaining agreement. However, representatives of the players’ union, including Max Scherzer and Gerrit Cole, are trying their best to get the new deal as soon as possible.

Now, with the opening day of the 2022 season just a month away, both the owners and the players’ union are in a hurry to wrap up the lockout. And to get things done, Max Scherzer, along with other representatives of the union, has been meeting regularly with the owners.
