"We have it all mapped out", Boras said according to the Los Angeles Times.

Boras' pitch for the postseason, which would not include any days off, would mean wild-card games would be held December 3, with all division series being played between December 5-9.

There are also more than 100 full classic Major League Baseball games on YouTube including timeless World Series games, memorable Postseason matchups, no-hitters and flawless games. Furthermore it is not fair for Twins and Indians fans to not have the opportunity to see their respective teams play the World Series up close rather than a neutral site.

While no live baseball action will take place on what was scheduled to be Opening Day, due to the league's suspension of activities in response to the coronavirus.

China drastically reduces global flights in move to curb imported coronavirus cases
The National Health Commission announced 81,285 diagnosed cases and 3,287 deaths from the virus known as COVID-19. China has seen a slowdown in local infections, but has continued to report imported infections .

There would be no days off in postseason series, and games would be played in Los Angeles, Anaheim, San Diego, Miami, Seattle, Arizona, Milwaukee, Toronto, Houston, St. Petersburg, Fla., and Arlington, Texas. (I would include games at Comerica Park in Detroit here too, but we all know the Tigers have no chance of going to the World Series in 2020). They are re-airing the Dodgers' Opening Day game from 2013, when Kershaw memorably hit the first - and only - home run of his career in a 4-0 win over the Giants.

As far as where the World Series will be played, Boras is a strong advocate of a neutral site for at least some of the games so that fans and sponsors have months to plan for the event, similar to the Super Bowl. You could secure corporate sponsorships and have entertainment surrounding it.

Boras has reason to suggest such a plan. A regular season encompassing October and November would require some games to be played in nasty weather, but Boras said the schedule could be adjusted to minimize the number of late-season games in cold-weather cities. While it's believed that the league may have to settle on an abbreviated season - perhaps as limited as an 81-game campaign starting in July - Boras believes the 2020 season can be played out in its entirety.
