Abbreviated 2020 season idea

Recommended Posts

1.  keep the 3 divisions per league, 5 teams per division.

2.  teams play 60 games in division, five 3 game series against each other opponent, 2 home, 3 away-or vice versa, and 15 games out of division.

3.  since there are 5 teams per division, they obv can't play all games within the division without weird days off.

4.  so, each team plays a 3 game series against the other league's same division (al west plays nl west etc.).

5.  each league gets 6 playoff teams, 3 division winners and 3 wildcards.

6.  top 2 division winners in each league get a bye and the other 4 teams in each league play off in a 3 or 5 game series

7.  remaining 4 teams in each league playoff in 7 game series 

8.  world series

Spring training in late June/early July.  Play July through October.  Then playoffs.  Playing 75 games at 6 a week would be 15 weeks.  Play 6 games a week, that would take 12-13 weeks to play 75 games.  No make-ups.  Try to keep playoffs playing too deep into November.

My idea would be out the door by now.  

Players return to ST in mid-May with ST games starting at 9am due to the AZ/FL heat.  Season starts June 12 in regular stadiums, concludes October 18.

It would be the same setup as always (3 divisions in each league).

Division opponents would play each other 12 times (6 home, 6 road), and play 6 times (3 home, 3 road) against each non-division opponent, with NO interleague games. 

108 game schedule, similar in length to 1981, without split seasons

WS goes no later than mid-November, and is played in the daytime.
