    MLB needs to start playing double-headers this weekend. Readjust the whole schedule.

    Home and away means nothing. Get ahead of the situation.

    They're going to need tripleheaders to make up all the postponements.

    they should make things fun. maybe double headers daily of 6 innings. maybe a team A and a team B for lineups. use this as a fun time. not sure of the logistics but trying to do regular baseball in a short time frame is just not going to work.

    The way it's going half the MLB will be making up games up to 2 weeks after regular season is over making the rest of the MLB wait for start of postseason.

    They should be playing six-game series to cut down on travel.

    Weekend 7 inning double headers would be smart.

    good idea. play the teams you are supposed to play all at once in a 6 game series. screw the home field even split.

    Each team could play every team in their division 6 games at home and 6 games away. 48 games. The other 12 games could be a 6 game series with another same-league team and another 6-game inter-league series. Entire 60 game season with 5 travels per team.

    The downside of this is if you are a National League team and you draw the Cubs and the Yankees as your intra-division/league games (example only).

    They need to play doubleheaders every day but they have to stretch it out because the playoff dates cannot be changed.

    I hate the seven inning game idea. Just go full slow-pitch softball and bring out the aluminum bats and start every at-bat with a full count. If we're going to destroy the game let's go full out!

    I'll bet it in contests but won't watch it. I have other sources than the NBA for my political content
