  • Revised 2020 MLB Schedule

    Has MLB announced anywhere the revised schedule for the 60 game 2020 season? Surely they are not going to continue with the original schedule on July 24?
    Some's basturds, some's ain't, thats the score.

    So far the only thing that I've heard mentioned is Yankees at Nationals for July 23, and even that's unofficial.

    The schedule will be completely redrawn from scratch.

      At the risk of hijacking this topic, any schedule and any number of games will be unfair to someone.

      There is a very good chance that the WS winner is doomed to have an asterisk. IMHO, that winner will likely be the healthiest. That status would include staying virus free.

      Such is fate, especially this year.

        Exactly who will put an asterisk next to the World Series champion?

          Well, I will, if you're looking for volunteers.
          They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

              I haven't seen game dates yet though you can bet they'll be issued ASAP - in the next three weeks, certainly - though tickets likely won't be sold to any of them this year.

              As for the schedule, it's 60 games. Each team will play 40 games against its divisional opponents (10 games versus each) and 20 games against the teams in its "mirror" division in the opposing league. AL East teams will play NL East teams, AL Central teams will play NL Central, etc. That will mean 4 games vs each of the interleague opponents.

              A scheduling example is below:

              2020 New York Yankees

              10 games vs. Baltimore Orioles
              10 games vs. Boston Red Sox
              10 games vs. Tampa Bay Rays
              10 games vs. Toronto Blue Jays
              4 games vs. Atlanta Braves
              4 games vs. Miami Marlins
              4 games vs. New York Mets
              4 games vs. Philadelphia Phillies
              4 games vs. Washington Nationals

              My assumption is that all interleague games will be played consecutively in two stretches. That is, the Yankees would travel to the Braves, Marlins, Mets, Nats and Phillies one after the other, playing only two games each - for a 10-game road trip. This would make sense to reduce travel and COVID-19 exposure.

                Exactly. No one asterisks the 1981 Los Angeles Dodgers. No one will asterisk 2020.

                Individual fans are free to hold their own opinions and if someone wants to place a mental "asterisk" on the season, go ahead. Major League Baseball won't.

                  Major League Baseball plans to officially announce its 2020 schedule Monday. The Yankees at Nats and Giants at Dodgers are expected to be the two nationally televised games on July 23, with everyone else opening July 24.

                    Well that was certainly timely.
