Last years WS Champion’s record after 50 games: 19-31. 50 games is just not a serious sample size for baseball. I wouldn’t say it would be “tainted” but I would never consider it a true season worthy of the title.I really don't understand the "tainted title" argument. They've had shortened seasons before that resulted in champions, and those were shortened by their own doing (strikes, lockouts). This season is shorter for reasons beyond anyone's control. I see no reason to not recognize the last team standing this year as the 2020 World Series champion, same as the Dodgers were 1981 World champs and the 1918 Red Sox were World Champs. Whether the regular season was 50 games, 100 games, 154 games or 162 games, what difference does it make?
And when you said this before you weren’t able to back it up IIRC.As I've said before, it seems like some people here want to come up with excuse after excuse of why this season just can't work.
