To the shock of absolutely nobody, not even the most optimistic baseball fans, reports emerged Thursday that the latest bargaining session between MLB and MLB Players Association representatives amid the ongoing lockout largely went nowhere and offered little hope that spring training will start on time next month. 

There’s now more information about what separates the sides as the halfway point of January approaches. 

According to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman, league owners remain against lowering the service-time requirement for players to hit free agency and, ideally, cash-in on the open market: 

(function(d, s, id) {
var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;
js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.5&appId=125075807517358”;
fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
}(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));
