    What's a Season?

    While baseball might not be back until July 1, there's a possibility it might not come back until August, if at all.

    At some point (and I think it should be sooner, rather than later, just so we make a less emotional decision) we need to decide, what makes a season?

    Baseball, if it comes back on August 1st, could have a 50-60 game (depending on double headers) sprint to the post-season. But let's just call it 8 weeks. The last 4 weeks are for playoffs in Fantasy.

    So if baseball comes back on August 1st, do we still play? Are 4 games enough to determine playoff teams?

    Some of this might be determined by CBS, but I think we should discuss whether we want a 4-game season and then playoffs, or do we say we need a certain minimum for things to be meaningful?

    Is it possible to play multiple teams at once?

    Just thinking, knowing it would be a massive pain for the com/ass-com, to have a team play two matchups in the same week, kind of like a double header?

    Alternatively, so long as everyone plays the teams in their division, shorten to just that? 2 points only wild cards.

    Re: What's a Season?

    We play.
    If there is a one-month season, we play.

    If there is a one-week season, we play.

    If there is a one-day season, we play.

    I'm down for whatever. Might actually solve the "draft the best team instead of teams tanking in May" annual debate.

    Instead of a 4-5 week season I’d be fine with a bracket event

    We (I) need baseball, so I would embrace it in any form.

    If we draft, I can run some OOTP sims with the resulting rosters while we wait for baseball to start. At least, I think I can.

    Be seeing you,

    I thought you would be raising the question of "what's a season?" in the context of spring, summer, autumn, and winter.

    I'm still betting on no season in 2020. However, once they announce a new Opening Day, we'll have a month to pick a date on a draft.
