After an article misrepresented Jeff Bassan’s reporting of the MLB shutdown, an MLB insider at ESPN took to Twitter to set the record straight.
ESPN’s Jeff Bassan is a respected and knowledgeable reporter covering Major League Baseball for the global leader in the sport. He’s good at what he does and is a great source of information for anyone trying to keep up with sports. This includes things like MLB lockout, which unfortunately continues and prevents baseball from happening.
The closure remains in place after negotiations collapsed earlier on Thursday. Bassan provided details about what happened, but it seems his tweets weren’t clear enough because the information he provided was eventually misrepresented.
Thus, Bassan made sure that everything was corrected and that it was not misreported anywhere.
The tweet that Bassan replied to does not exist anymore, so what did she say?
The article in question has also been removed from existence. It simply is no longer online. If you go to a URL where it was before, it no longer exists.
So, what did Bassan report?

According to Bassan, the two sides reportedly sat down to address the shutdown. This will be the first time in 2022 that they meet. MLB made some sort of suggestion, but it didn’t seem like it was actually a serious one because people on both sides of the issue apparently thought the deal wouldn’t actually go through today.
Well, the talks ended without real progress. Now, according to Bassan, the baseball world will await a response from the MLBPA on the matter.
In general, if a proposal is made and no one expects it to go well, it probably will not be a proposal that solves the problem at hand. It looks like everyone will be waiting for a response from the union and hopefully some kind of progress will be made with it.
