Mlb Lockout: How The Sf Giants Might Be Impacted By The Key Issues

By the middle of next week, Scottsdale Stadium should be bustling with the sounds of spikes clacking along the infield dirt, coaches barking out instructions for the first drills of the spring and fastballs piercing through the desert air and into catcher’s mitts.

The Giants’ pitchers and catchers, however, won’t be pulling into the players’ parking lot at the corner of Osborn and Drinkwater to report to camp in the coming days.

A lockout implemented on Dec. 2 by Major League Baseball owners remains in place.

It’s been more than two months since the owners locked out the players and an agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement appears no closer than it did when the work stoppage began. Owners and the Players Association have reportedly met just four times since the start of the lockout and all indications suggest the start to spring training will be delayed while an on-time Opening Day is now in jeopardy.

If and when an agreement is reached, the Giants –like 29 other teams– will be required to work quickly to adjust to baseball’s new reality.
