Baseball Deadlock

RYE BROOK, New York ) -- After 15 hours of meetings, baseball owners said Wednesday that the players would make a new proposal when talks resumed later in the day.


But whether the players would come up with something that will convince owners not to impose a salary cap Thursday was uncertain. For the second straight day, discussions went well past midnight. But the sides remained stalemated over a luxury tax, even while the union discussed the possibility of trading salary arbitration for earlier free agency.


Management negotiator John Harrington has said if there is not a deal by Thursday, the teams will declare an impasse and impose a salary cap.
