Good question to end on here, because I just realized the time.
There were planned discussions about topics on the fringes, outside of the core differences, and conversations about some of the details that could be done and moved on from just so they did not get raced through at the end in the rush to start spring training. Health and safety discussions, for example, are things that need to continually be discussed as the virus continues to shape and change what can be done city to city.
There were not substantive negotiations that weren't known about publicly, not from what I can and report based on conversations I've had. It's an odd question for me to answer because if I said yes and I hadn't reported on them until this moment then my bosses would read this and wonder what gives, why didn't I report that they were happening secretly when I knew about it? Why did I wait for someone to ask in the chat to reveal this bit of news?
The two sides expect to meet in the near future, formally, and that information is public.
