This is where I'm at. I was happy to watch the MFY/NYM tonight, but the empty stadium, cardboard fans, masks, and the odds players will infect each other, I am not confident we'll see a full 60 game slate, let alone a playoff. They should be using this as a chance to introduce the headcam view, ingame interviews, more mic'd up players, and anything else to celebrate the game while they try to play some before it folds up.
Yeah, throw out some trial balloons. Make the game more fan-friendly.

Personally, I like the tradition. I like the long season, the endurance factor, the concept that much comes out in the wash, and doing well in the sport isn't just a matter of which team might have a two week long hot streak. I like following the players, watching them arc over the season, which begins in the spring and ends in the fall. It gives a context to personal and team achievements. It's a journey you go on.
And I agree.

Still, given that can't happen in 2020, I would prefer something to nothing, and I'm still looking forward to having something, whatever that may be.

I doubt where the fans are will make a difference in decision making since no one's going to be attending games anyway. I would expect that if we reach a point where fans are allowed in the stadiums, we'd also be at a point where the Jays, and visiting teams, would be allowed to return to Rogers Centre.
Wow, total brain fart. Of course. TV market/crew issues will be easier in area I’m sure.
