Negotiators for MLB owners and players are scheduled to meet tomorrow for the first time in 12 weeks, according to the N.Y. TIMES. MLBPA representatives will reportedly present a counterproposal to an offer made by the owners on November 15. The owners' plan called for adjusting taxes on player payrolls based on industry revenues. The union "has indicated" they see that as not much different than the luxury tax idea rejected last March (N.Y. TIMES, 2/6).
