MLB Playoffs Will Be Played In A Bubble
The MLB season is like nothing we've ever seen before. A 60 game sprint to the postseason and an attempt to avoid COVID-19 as much as possible while still playing the majority of games in teams home ballparks. Even though it appears the worst of players testing positive for the coronavirus is behind us with about two weeks left in the season the MLB and the MLBPA have reportedly agreed to move all playoff teams into a bubble scenario in an attempt to ensure a smooth postseason.
