MLB and the Players Association are meeting today in New York as they continue to discuss details of the new collective bargaining agreement (CBA).

There is a wide range of possible outcomes after today’s meeting, one of them being the ABC’s tentative agreement and the season starting with a 162-game schedule.

While this remains an unlikely scenario given how advanced both parties’ respective claims are, it is nonetheless a possibility.

In case there is a new CBA in place by the end of the day, there is a chance that New York Mets ace Max Scherzer will start his career with his new team in a familiar place.

Yes: According to Newsday’s Tim Healey, “if MLB and MLBPA *somehow* reach a deal today, it would allow Max Scherzer to make his Mets debut against the Nationals in Washington , DC”

Scherzer is a hero in DC

Scherzer is a hero in Washington: he’s built a strong relationship with DC fans, who absolutely love him.

It launched in the nation’s capital from 2015 to 2021.

He won two National League Cy Young Awards there, in 2016 and 2017, and threw two hits in 2015.

More importantly, Scherzer was the ace of the rotation when the Nats won the 2019 World Series title in a close game against the Houston Astros.

It wasn’t until the shortened 2020 season (3.74) that Scherzer had an ERA above 3.00 during his time in Washington, and chances are it would have been lower if the season had had more sleeves.

Now with another jersey, Washington fans are likely heartbroken to see him play for a division rival.

They understand it’s a business, though, and Scherzer has always expressed his gratitude to Washington fans.
