PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan)-As Major League Baseball continues to be back and forth between the players and the owners trying to work out a deal and the promise from Commissioner Rob Manfred a week ago that we would have a 100 percent chance of having a season to his words yesterday that he is "Not certain" that there will be a season. It appears to be a bad day for baseball.


But Pirates General Manager Ben Cherington continued to be optimistic when he joined  The Cook and Joe Show on Tuesday. 


Cherington says he was taught by his mentor a long time ago that it's always darkest before the dawn.


He remains optimistic that there will be a season one way or another based on the knowledge that the teams and players have the motivation to play and usually that motivation leads to a deal.



Cherington also discussed with the guys the challenges that he will face with player moves should the season be a shortened  one and the great marks he is getting from the experts on his first Amaterasu draft as the Pirates GM.
