ESPN's Karl Ravech is reporting that Major League Baseball owners are set to make a 70-75 game offer to the MLB Players Association as soon as Friday.

The players and owners have been negotiating on a way to play any sort of regular season in 2020 for several months now.  The coronavirus pandemic postponed spring training, and then the subsequent start to the regular season back in March.

If the owners and players can't agree on how to play in 2020, it is believed that MLB commissioner Rob Manfred can unilaterally impose a 48-52 game regular season.  That's apparently based on an agreement both sides made back in March.

If there is no World Series, it would be the third time since 1903 that the Fall Classic hasn't been played (1904 and 1994 being the others).
