The answer to the question everyone wants to know. The dog’s name is Henny. He is a 3-year-old golden retriever. He is a very good boy. He belongs to Han Lee, Cho’s agent. Henny and his family are Instagram stars: Congrats to Won-Bin Cho, of course.

Cho, 18, is a toolsy, power-hitting centerfielder and one of the top high school prospects out of Seoul, SK. He is the first Asian amateur player signed by the Cardinals organization.

This was fun. In part because it was nice to talk ball for a couple hours, but mainly because Kevin allowed me to bloviate about how the Excursion scene in Station Eleven was the best thing I've seen on TV in years.

This is very important to understand: Bargaining is not linear. Sometimes it's big proposals. Others it's incremental. The union will counter -- likely sooner than later. This is a long process. Significant progress before March 1, when games are threatened, could be minimal.

Plenty more coming in a story at ESPN but the broad strokes of MLB's proposal, per sources: - Funnel additional money to all players with 2+ years service - Award draft picks to teams that don't manipulate service of successful top prospects - Tweaks to proposed draft lottery

Baseball labor update: There is no deal. There never was going to be one today. MLB made a proposal. The reaction among the players was not positive. Few on either side expected it to be. The question is how soon the MLBPA counters. Spring training starting on time is in peril.

NEWS at ESPN: 3-time World Series champion Jon Lester is retiring. I spoke with him and others in his orbit. Dustin Pedroia: “Anytime he had the ball in a big game, you were going in for an 80-minute massage. You were in good hands.” Story here:

Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association plan to hold a bargaining session Thursday, sources tell ESPN. MLB is expected to make a core-economics proposal at the session, which would be the first between the sides since the league locked out the players on Dec. 2.

While I'm here: 1) Yes, I'm alive. 2) Miss you guys, too. 3) No, there has been no progress on the labor front. Don't anticipate there will be for a while. Talks will restart in early January. Not much else there. 4) Stay safe and healthy and have a wonderful holiday season.

Bellinger hit .165/.240/.302 in a rough 2021 but was excellent in the postseason. Some in the industry thought he could be nontendered, but he’ll return to the Dodgers and make $900,000 more than he did last year. Bellinger is due to be a free agent after the 2023 season.
