MLB and the Players Union have reportedly reached a deal on how the 2020 season will play out with the coronavirus delay.

Under the agreement, reached after two weeks of nonstop negotiation, players will get credit for a full year of service time, no matter how many games are played in 2020.

However, player salaries will be reduced based on the number of games played.  In return, MLB will advance $170 million to players over the next two months.

MLB will also likely move the 2020 Draft to July and possibly shorten it to as little as five rounds.

How many MLB games do you think will be played this season?  Would you support a shorter MLB season permanently?
