Baseball Post Coronavirus

25 Mar

The Athletic writers Ken Rosenthal and Jayson Stark today reimagine baseball post coronavirus and its possible permutations.

One suggestion: Start the season with an All-Star Game. Another involves playing more doubleheaders but limit games to seven innings. Still another involves applying the MILB extra innings rules.

As Angels Manager Joe Maddon said in the piece:

“Once you’ve heard that your life is altered, hopefully for just a couple of months, even though obviously there are lessons to be learned down the road, doesn’t that kind of lessen in a sense the traditions of the game and how it’s been played?

“Find out. Maybe we don’t like the changes. Maybe we think they’re terrible. But we have this opportunity to find out.”
