POLL: FenwayNation Readers Divided On New MLB Plan For 2020 Season

Early voting in our latest FenwayNation Poll suggests that fans are literally evenly-divided on MLB's new plan to play a truncated 2020 season. As the chart shows, 50% favor the idea and 50% oppose it. The plan would eliminate the traditional American and National League alignments and create three new geographically-based divisions: East, Central, West—with 10 teams in each division. All 30 teams would play home contests in their own stadiums. Regional groupings would keep down excessive travel. It is estimated that this idea could result in 100-110 games—plus some sort of (yet to be determined) playoff scenario. No fans would be allowed during the regular season, but might be allowed (on a limited basis) for post-season tilts. You can still vote in the poll HERE.
