    What happened is they have a 0.1% positive covid rate and now they want as much fucking baseball as possible since they know they can do it.

    Fuck that. This whole thing is wild and the season is short as hell. Make the season crazier and add baseball.

    Pass on 16 team playoffs. Its a 60 game sprint so the regular season games mean more than ever now. Making more than half the league get into the playoffs would take away from that.

    The league has always wanted this. More series = more elimination games for TV, which generally = more money. My guess is the playoffs won't actually last any longer. They would just have a eight different 3-game series to open the playoffs than two wild card games.

    I wonder if this is happening because there's some momentum for this within the PA for some reason. That, or the league has something the players want in negotiation (no clue what that would be).

    It's a 60-game regular season. Most teams won't have starters capable of going more than 5-6 innings until week two or three of the season. We'll have more random guys missing games than ever due to COVID. The regular season is going to be a complete crapshoot.

    I'm not in favor of major playoff expansion under normal circumstances, but these aren't normal circumstances and I have no problem with expanding them in a 60-game regular season in a pandemic.

    That's fair, I just prefer to not water down what should be an awesome 60 game sprint. Having regular season games have huge importance would be a welcome change to me.
