CBS Sportsline: Sources say a labor deal is “80-85% complete”
Source: Mike Freeman – CBSSportsline.com
Mike Freeman of CBSSportsline.com writes “One source with intimate knowledge of the discussions tells me (Freeman) negotiations are 80-85 percent complete. They’ve made such fast progress, I’m told, it’s catching many of the principals by surprise. Some are now canceling vacations, believing an agreement will be reached within a matter of days.”

Understand that the devil can be in those details that comprise the last 10-15%. And never underestimate the stupidity of one or two folks who feel the need to flex their muscle and ego.
I’m not as optimistic as Freeman but it’s pretty clear there is good reason for optimism here. Continue to keep your fingers crossed.
