MLB, MLBPA reportedly making final negotiation effort

  MLB, MLBPA reportedly making final negotiation effort If the two sides aren’t able to reach a compromise, commissioner Rob Manfred is expected to implement a season at a length of the league’s choosing. Doing so would ensure the players their prorated salaries for the duration of the 2020 season and would not include the expanded playoffs, which the union has offered to ownership. Barring an agreement between the two sides, we’re down to the “last hours” before Manfred implements a season length, per Olney. Throughout this process, both parties have maintained that they hope to reach a deal rather than have a season set by Manfred under the pre-existing March agreement.

Last week's down-ballot primary action in Kentucky and New York still isn't settled, but it's time for three more states -- Colorado , Utah and Oklahoma -- to host primaries Tuesday, and there's at least one contest in each state that could help shape the balance of power in Congress next year.

The latest round of primaries on Tuesday led to a top Democratic Senate recruit escaping his primary damaged and Republicans vying for a chance to run in a competitive House race unable to coalesce around one candidate.

John Hickenlooper won his primary but not without suffering some blows, something the top Democrats who recruited the former Colorado governor had hoped to avoid. Hickenlooper's errors, while largely self-inflicted, could end up helping Sen. Cory Gardner, a Republican who -- given Colorado's voting history -- seems particularly vulnerable.

Hickenlooper exits primary bruised

Hickenlooper vanquished his Democratic primary opponent, former state House Speaker Andrew Romanoff, on Tuesday.

But it wasn't a clean win.

Hickenlooper, the establishment's pick to face vulnerable Republican Sen. Cory Gardner and a candidate in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, stumbled repeatedly leading into Tuesday primary election, including angering activists with a bumbled answer on Black Lives Matter and the Colorado Independent Ethics Commission finding the former governor twice violated ethics laws in 2018.

"It's going to take all of us together to beat Cory Gardner and bring about the change this country so desperately needs," Hickenlooper said in a taped video. "I've never lost an election in this state, and I don't intend to lose this one. There's far too much at stake."

Hickenlooper's struggle to get out of the primary has clearly frustrated national Democrats, especially considering how critical defeating Gardner in November is to Democratic hopes of retaking the Senate. Without a Hickenlooper win, those chances are significantly harder.

It took Jones running against a weird, literal creepy ass pedo segregationist at the height of the backlash of Trumps win in More topics from this board Kentucky and New York Primary Topic.

And by struggling to get out of the primary, Hickenlooper has given Republicans more material against him over the next four months.

"If watching him fall apart under pressure these last few weeks is any indication, 'hot mess' Hickenlooper is in for a very bumpy ride," Joanna Rodriguez, spokeswoman for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, said about the former governor's win.

Oklahoma House Republicans hopefuls headed to runoff

No Republican vying for the chance to take on Democrat Rep. Kendra Horn in November was able to avoid a runoff on Tuesday, meaning Neese will face a runoff on August 25 against a fellow Republican yet to be determined.

The winner of the Republican primary will take on Horn, whose ability to narrowly win in 2018 in the Oklahoma City district President Donald Trump carried by 13 points was arguably the biggest surprise for Democrats in the midterms.

The district has been in flux, as Oklahoma City and the nearby suburbs grow younger and better educated, two factors that help Democrats. But Horn benefited from Trump not being on the ballot in 2018, and Republicans hope Trump could boost the Republican in the district.

Neese was among the two most competitive candidates in the primary headed into Tuesday's voting along with state State Sen. Stephanie Bice. Bice is better financed, raising more than $1 million by the end of the pre-primary reporting period on June 10. But Neese was able to partly self-fund her primary bid, loaning her campaign $450,000 while raising around $532,000.
