2020 MLB Playoffs

biggest change is no off-days, meaning you won't see a scenario like we used last year in which a #3 starter is pitching in relief in multiple games:

For this year — and presumably this year only — the divisional and championship rounds will be played without off days. The divisional round will take place over five consecutive days, followed by a day off, followed by as many as seven consecutive days of championship series play.

So if your starters can’t go deep into their games then the pen will not have a day off to rest.

Will the rosters stay expanded?

I imagine so, and may grow to 29 or 30 to enable adding extra relievers.

kind of cool that you have to use your full rotation.  I'm sure  Austin Voth is psyched for a start. 




Oh, wait.

I can't wait for the board to blow up after Gio Gonzales goes 7 IP with 1 ER and 9Ks.

White Sox clinch a playoff spot, winning 2 out of their last three with the following starters against the Indians:  Dunning, Giolito, Lopez.

Yeah, that's a lot of Adam Eaton right there.

That’s Spanky to you.  The way he hit down the stretch and in the post season last year was priceless.
