The 2020 Postseason seems to be the ultimate tease. First, we heard rumors of a plan to expand to 16 teams only to learn that idea had been nixed when Rob Manfred railroaded his 60-game plan down the players’ throats. Then playoff expansion was resurrected in the 11th hour, just moments before the season started. Now, who knows if there will even be a postseason, but fuck it — it’s fun to talk about at least.
Kris Bryant and Ryan Tepera for Joey Bart would serve the #SFGiants and #Cubs very well | #MLB's hypocrisy exposed once again as Javy Baez is fined for showing emotion on the field while MLB markets the shit out of it | Cubs maximize an asset and A's gain a legendary cult hero with Andrew Chafin trade | The Jesus Lizard shockingly dealt to Miami for expensive rental, Starling Marte | Dallas Keuchel struggles versus lefties has him feeling like he's pitching on Mars, but is that a bad thing? | Rick Hahn has #WhiteSox fans worried he's overplayed his hand being TOO patient waiting for the trade market to come to him while the supply of bullpen arms and middle infielders dwindles | Miguel Cabrera passes Barry Bonds on the all-time hits list and inches closer to 500 home runs | #Tigers Eric Haase and Akil Baddoo emerging as serious Rookie of the Year contenders at the expense of division rivals | If MLB is really worried about viewership numbers being down they could simply lift their fucking ridiculous blackout policy | Know your history, kids — comparing Shohei Ohtani and Babe Ruth is lazy and an injustice to both #CubTogether #ChangetheGame #DetroitRoots #ResilientSF #RiseandGrind #MakeItMajor
