My colleague, Mike Freeman, is right about what happened Thursday: Owners did make significant concessions in the rookie wage issue, hoping to bring talks closer to a resolution. Management sources indicated that the move saved what could have been two or three days of talks, clearing the way for lawyers to draft language that still could take a significant amount of time.

Bottom line: Thursday was a good day for talks, and it appears both sides are on schedule for a resolution by next week.

We told you earlier this week that a handshake deal could come on or around July 19, the date of the next scheduled mediation session in Minneapolis, and that stands. Owners would like to have the opportunity to look at the proposed new deal for at least a couple of days before voting on it at their July 21 meeting in Atlanta.

Rookie wage concessions doesn't sound good, Judge.
