MLB Expand Playoffs For 2020 Season
Your team has a chance to make the playoffs! Well, a much better chance that is.
The MLB and MLB Players Association are working down to the wire to expand the playoffs to 16 teams for the shortened 2020 season. With first pitch coming in just hours, the deal will need to be approved quickly.
One of the ideas according to ESPN's Buster Olney is division winners able to choose their oppenents during a televised selection show. That is fantastic. It's like being in the WWE and calling out your opponent from the ring. Then the music hits and they walk down the ramp from backstage. I really want to see this as it just seems like the teams that would be picked would have a "Oh really, you think we're the easy out." attitude with them.
