Surprise! It looks like we’ll have a 2020 Major League Baseball season. Well, at least the financial and schedule terms for a season have been agreed to. But COVID-19 concerns could still ruin all of these plans, which was supposed to be the obstacle to baseball being played in the first place.
So what will a 2020 MLB season look like? That’s what we talked about on a bonus WISE Sports Radio baseball update. But please pardon me if I still don’t fully buy in until a regular season pitch is finally thrown.
One correction: I said that there wouldn’t be Interleague Play this year, which I suppose is technically correct. But American League and National League teams will be grouped together in divisions based on geographic regions for this season only. So the Yankees and Mets will be in the East. The Dodgers and Astros will play each other in the West, giving us a rematch of the 2017 World Series. Etc.
You guys got the Arthur Fonzarelli “I was wrong” reference, right?
