I can't take the MLB owners and MLBPA arguing like this. If Manfred is right, I will be TICKED. This ESPN story This is a case of GREEDY billionaires fighting with millionaires. Drives me nuts. Does anyone want to share their ideas for a season? Here is Bryce Harpers via Insta, for those of you that haven't seen it. I would be fine with it. Little parts I disagree with, but nothing huge.
Beyond the health and safety which comes first for all players, staff, workers, fans, and families. ⠀
Just an idea I have been thinking about.
East/West like NBA.
July 31 days
August 31 days
September 30 days
October 31 days
November 15 days
Off day every 2 weeks on a Monday and Sunday double header 7 innings. ⠀
30 players. 6 man rotation. Save arms. IF pitchers wanted this. If not no big deal. DH and any other ideas possible.⠀
2 week World Series. Like Super bowl week.
10 teams round robin format College World Series kinda style at the new Texas Stadium or whatever stadium/ stadiums are best. 3 game series. You win the series you move on. You lose you play the other loser in a 1 game wildcard. Winner of that moves on. Other team is out.
Or you could play it in Vegas so you have the Strip Hotels and could use one hotel for all the guys and contain possibly?
2 teams left 7 game World Series. They get 2 days off before the series. With those 2 days off you do a All Star Game and homerun derby. Could do the MLB awards as well at that time.
Open this up on all platforms. No blackouts. Open it for everybody to watch.
Then you back up season the next 2 years. May 1st 2021. April 1st 2022. Maybe I’m crazy. Just fun to think about and throw around ideas🤪
