MLB: Spring Training-New York Yankees at Washington Nationals Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports

We’re no closer to knowing if baseball will be played in 2020 this week than we were last week. MLB and the MLBPA did agree on some stipulations for what it would look like if baseball does happen this year, however. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:

What are some creative rule changes for the 2020 season?

Some of the ideas being tossed around include another round of spring training games, playing in empty stadiums, increased doubleheaders, playing regular season games throughout October, changing the playoff format, and a neutral-site World Series. Keep in mind that MLB will only play out part of the season if all parties agree that it is safe to do so. So, assuming that it is safe, what are some creative ways of getting in as many games as possible? Head over to the FanPost section and submit your answer. We’ll feature one of the submissions on the front page on Friday.

How will we select which FanPosts to promote to the front page? Some of it will be subjective. If you follow our tips, you should find yourself on the right track. We will also be looking for FanPosts with comments and recommendations. Depending on the number of responses we get, receiving some recs on your post could separate your FanPost from the crowd. Additionally, if your post has a number of comments then it may have sparked some worthwhile discussions. These are just a few things we’ll be looking for when we decide which post(s) to promote on the front page. We are always on the lookout for new talent, and the FanPost section can be a great way to get our attention.

Submit your answer in the FanPost section before Friday (April 3) for your post to be considered.
