This week marks the halfway mark of our abbreviated 2020 season. It feels like just yesterday I was writing posts skewering Rob Manfred’s inability to make the season come to life, and now the Pumpkin Spice Latte has returned to Starbucks, and we’re all abuzz about the postseason.

For a short season that has been brimming with drama and shocking moments, this week (knock on wood) has felt light on the drama and tension. In Houston they’re rescheduling games to prepare for Hurricane Laura, and it’s still bonkers that sports are happening at all this year, but given the high bar for bonkers nonsense in 2020, the week thus far has felt almost relaxing.

The two biggest stories around the baseball writing universe are the upcoming trade deadline, of course, and the previously mention halfway point of the season.

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