On That’s Amaury’s podcast:

#1 Amaury both MLB and the players union met on Monday and the players have agreed to drop the five year waiting period for free agency and wanted to discuss revenue sharing with the owners. MLB and the union although not concluding to a deal agreed to meet again today.

#2 It’s been 43 days since the owners declared a lock out on the players and having their first sit down bargaining session. It is thought to have negotiations two days in a row to be a good sign that there might be some kind of talks and a ray of light to getting things moving again.

#3 The players union dropped the proposal that would allow a player nearing 30 years of age to declare free agency after five years of service. The players said they would alter their proposal for revenue sharing.

#4 Amaury you’ve seen how close these post season NFL games have been. This Sunday’s game in Los Angeles with the San Francisco 49ers against the Rams for the NFC Championship should be a classic match between evenly matched teams.

#5 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo had a strain shoulder injury from their game in Dallas on Sun Jan 16th. The defense pretty much won the game for the 49ers on a blocked punt that was returned for a touchdown and special teams kicker Robbie Gould who booted a game winning field goal to get the 49ers in the NFC Championship.
