Will we get a new CBA from MLB and the MLBPA today?
Major League Baseball announced on Monday evening that they’re putting a Tuesday deadline on a new CBA to get 162 games played this year. That’s big; they already cancelled the first two series of the 2022 regular season. We’ll see if a deal can get done today/tonight.
We wouldn’t bet on a deal getting done today. But would Calvin Ridley?
We’re also heading into peak college basketball season, with conference tournaments starting to take up our late night viewing. Who’s your pick to click in March Madness?
Here’s what we’re watching tonight:
- NHL: Avalanche @ Devils — 7 PM ET
- NHL: Rangers @ Wild — 8 PM ET
- NBA: Nets @ Hornets — 7 PM ET
- NBA: Clippers @ Warriors — 10 PM ET
- CBB: #17 St. Mary’s vs #1 Gonzaga — 9 PM ET
Since we need a pick-me-up with baseball continuing to drive us crazy waiting, here’s something lighter to start our shootaround today.

Rutgers looking to make a run
The Big Ten men’s basketball tournament is ready to jump, and the Scarlet Knights got a double-bye after a strong regular season. Some still say Rutgers is on the bubble to get in, so they’ll need a strong performance in the B1G to cement their spot in the dance. Here’s their draw:

I was told there would be no math!
If you didn’t watch the TNT pregame show last night, Ernie Johnson had another night of trying to coordinate a conversation that was… well, just watch.
