Royals Review Radio: The baseball could be back soon episode

But only if owners and players can work out the money.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

We’re ready for baseball to be back, and we may be a step closer with a proposal from owners on resuming play this summer, but the player’s union has some objections, and our Max Rieper, Shaun Newkirk, and David Lesky will discuss the disagreement. Plus we talk about the biggest “what-ifs” in Royals history. Among the topics we discuss:

Will owners and players come to an agreement to get baseball back?

Are owners right to ask players for even more reduced pay?

What player safety measures will have to be taken?

How should the Royals handle their pitching prospects in this weird season?

Links to some of the things we discussed:

MLB owners propose plan for return in July.

Player’s union objects to owner’s plans for compensation.

Jeff Passan’s 20 questions.

Some “what ifs” to consider in Royals history.

Erik Larson’s Devil in the White City.
