It may be impossible for every NL East and AL East team to play a 60-game schedule. The Marlins’ entire week of games has been postponed. They won’t play again until Tuesday, Aug. 4, at home against the Philadelphia Phillies – and that’s the best-case scenario.
But that appears unlikely as Miami mayor Carlos Gimenez announced Tuesday that the Marlins should adhere to a 14-day quarantine protocol when returning to South Florida having been knowingly exposed to COVID-19.
The juggling act may force MLB to determine playoff berths simply on team’s winning percentages, and not records.
