There have been many proposals from baseball people regarding playing a meaningful baseball season. Maybe we need to work backward.
Baseball has always been unique because of its marathon season spread throughout the summer. That, obviously, is not going to happen. I'm behind everyone who has an idea on how to get started but shouldn't we err on the side of caution? If and when the nation is cleared, that is when baseball should start. So let's get crazy.
"Ballin in the Fall." Just steal the March Madness idea, and baseball runs its own version in November.
All teams are in (a chance to see every team's stars, including Mike Trout) and you play the best two out of three. No seeds, everyone is equal, just like the traditional Opening Day. The finals, of course, are a seven-game series. This could be done in one geographical location or -- if life is somewhat back to normal then -- play the barnstorming games all around the country so fans can get their fill.
Just a thought.
Stay healthy, be kind to each other and PEACE.
