It appears that baseball negotiators are on the verge of completing a ground-breaking new labor deal.  According to ESPN, sources say a deal that will drastically change the landscape of the sport could be reached as soon as this week.  Negotiations are on hold due to the MLB's quarterly owners meetings, but are expected to start back up tomorrow.  Main pieces of the new deal include realignment of the sport into two 15-team leagues, adding a second wild card team in each league, spreading out Interleague play throughout the entire regular season and making significant changes to the draft and free agency.  A deal would cement two decades of continuous labor peace for the first time since the formation of the MLB Players Association in the 1960's.
