We’re going to hear a lot of weird suggestions before baseball comes back.

With baseball’s future in 2020 uncertain, experts are trying to determine how to get as many games as possible into as short a time period as they might have available to them, and the ideas range from clever to bizarre (and several are likely from Rob Manfred’s dream journal about how to speed up pace of play).

In a post by Mark Polishuk at MLB Trade Rumors, the question of tied games was raised, and to whether or not MLB should allow them for the sake of the abbreviated 2020 season. Al wrote about it here, too, on Friday.

While many are firmly on the side of no ties ever no matter what, it does raise the interesting question of what baseball might look like in 2020 and what shortcuts or rule bends teams might have to allow.

What do you guys think, though, tie games or no?

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster. Make it so.
