MLB players and owners have still not struck a deal to begin the 2020 MLB season. SI's Tom Verducci poses the question: If they are having this much trouble to work out a deal after this much back-and-forth, how are they expected to come to terms on a new collective bargaining agreement beginning with the 2021-2022 season? As Verducci explains, the answer might be found by looking back at the 1981 season.
