    Re: Options for the season

    Not sure what the CBA guidelines are but I would be in favor of this scenario:

    1) all teams play 1 doubleheader a week, with season ending no matter what October 15 with playoffs that weekend. keep all current off days intact.

    2) MLB expands rosters to 28 for this season only, 1 extra arm, 1 extra bat.

    3) Spring training resumes to a 7 game season max.

    I kid, but could you imagine that schedule?
    Six games a week?

    That'd be interesting, no doubt.

    Were I the MLBPA, I'd dangle a salary floor, 28-man rosters (for this season only), and automatic DH in both leagues (from this season forward) for one day-night double-header a week. Even that may not be enough.

    Skip the All-Star game this year and leave the off days to make up rainouts during the first part of the season. Play the makeup games in domes/retractable roof stadia (Tampa, Houston, Phoenix, Milwaukee, Toronto or Seattle) as neutral site games to ensure they get made up. It would be like a mini version of going to NCAA basketball 1st round games - start games as early as 11:30 to make sure you could play 3 full games each day. Proceeds from games go to stadium workers around MLB impacted by the shortened schedule.

    Or think inside the box and shorten the schedule.

    I like the idea of adding some additional players. Would playing a double header ever Saturday be too much? Eliminate a few off days and maybe all of this could make up 4 weeks. Maybe you could expand the roster to as many as 30 to allow some guys to get some rest.
