MLB is talking about implementing a 50ish-game season that feels a slander to the league’s history, integrity and continuity. In a pandemic maybe you take what you get. But it is not the virus stopping owners and players from staging a more representative season. It is the money.

When this is all forensically gone over in the future, I suspect we will discover that if the sides had been cooperative they already would have been in spring training for a few weeks now and been capable of playing a regular season that ends in September and was 100 or more games. 

MLB’s first offer of 82 games was going to invite asterisks. But at least it is half a season. Being in first place at roughly the traditional All-Star break feels relevant, if incomplete. Teams reach 50 games at about Memorial Day, normally the first pitstop to assess the season, not determine everything from ERA titles to championships. 

Maybe expanded playoffs would cover some shorter-season sins. But the 50ish game season with full prorated pay would be something forced upon the players. They would have to approve going from 10 to 14 postseason teams, and why would they do that moneymaking favor for the owners? 

The plan is officially in place.

The NBA voted to approve a return-to-play plan on Thursday that will see 22 teams descend upon the league’s central hub at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, FL for a slate of games beginning on July 31. 

Unlike the recently-approved NHL’s plan, the NBA will not immediately jump into a postseason format. Instead, the 22 teams invited to Orlando will play eight regular-season games to determine the final playoff seedings.
