since they were going full on circus act from jump street, they should have done ties instead of the new extra innings rules. Then if your game gets cancelled, both teams get a half point; full point for winning the HR derby after that.They can make it if the league can figure out how to account for unplayed games in the final standings. If MLB is willing to compare the records of teams that have played 60 games and of teams that have played 30-40 games - probably by raw winning percentage, but other options are possible (e.g., see my recent post in the other thread) - then there's no reason not to let a team take two weeks off in quarantine. If the league isn't willing to stomach that sort of discrepancy, it's screwed...but this season is weird enough, and the financial stakes are high enough, that I think MLB will try and muddle through even if multiple teams have to go into quarantine, and even if that produces all sorts of fairness and balance issues in determining who makes it into the playoffs. Which is why I chose option 2 in the poll.
