In the eyes of many MLB fans, and even experts, this year’s World Series winner will not be the undisputed champion that it usually is. The shortened 2020 campaign – starting on July 23rd – will feature just 60 games per team, which is nearly a third of the normal 162 games.

This could prove to be just another piece of evidence why viewers should prepare for an absolute madness and overhaul in 2020.
