MLB’s Christian Yelich on OMF: It’s 50/50 league plays this year

And now, a dissenting opinion from many in the last entry:

It’s been roughly a month since Major League Baseball shut down spring training and since there hasn’t been much information as it relates to the 2020 regular season.

But, it’s a topic that has been discussed, most recently ESPN’s Jeff Passan writing the league could return some time in May with the entire league playing in Arizona.

Appearing on Ordway, Merloni & Fauria Tuesday, 2018 National League MVP Christian Yelich checked in to give his thoughts on the proposal and if the league will come back at all.

Yelich said the plan to play in Arizona has its challenges including players being away from their families for so long, logistics of getting to and from fields, will there be enough tests, among others.
