BTP The Offseason, Day 107: MLB’s gonna give us a college baseball season

After months of contentious back-and-forth arguing that occasionally took the form of negotiations, Major League Baseball and the players’ union finally reached a point where they’ve decided to at least try to play.

If health and safety measures prove feasible, we’ll have a 60-game season, which amounts to a sprint in MLB terms but is also essentially the length of any given college baseball season. We lost college baseball this year and MLB is here to give us a proxy, which works for me.

If circumstances allow this baseball season to play out, it figures to be wonderfully chaotic, with the sport’s thin margins cut even thinner. Look at these win totals from Vegas—the majority of the league falls between 30-38 wins, which is going to lead to one hell of a playoff race, where fortunes in one-run games are going to decide seasons.

Sounds like fun.
