MLB Cancels 93 More Games, Gap Narrows In Bargaining
NEW YORK (AP) — Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred canceled 93 more games Wednesday, increasing pressure on locked out players and appearing to close the remaining chance to play a full 162-game schedule.
The union said it was promised a counter-proposal by #MLB which never came. MLB said it would cancel another week of games if no deal was reached this afternoon. There was no deal. Games canceled.

MLB announced two additional series had been canceled through April 13.
That raised the total to 184 games wiped out from the 2,430-game season, or 7.6%. Opening day would now be April 14.
