After competing against the likes of the Chicago Cubs, St. Louis Cardinals, and Cincinnati Reds for over 20 years, the one and likely done Coronavirus scenario has the Milwaukee Brewers playing other divisional foes in 2020.
Reported by USA Today Sports last week, the latest idea to get the MLB season going sooner rather than later has the league's 30 teams retreat to their spring training homes. That eliminates to NL Central foes right away because the Pittsburgh Pirates and the St. Louis Cardinals play in the Grapefruit League in Florida. The Cactus League and the Grapefruit League would be divided into three divisions based on geography. Here's what that would look like potentially:
NORTHEAST: Chicago Cubs, San Francisco Giants, Arizona Diamondbacks, Colorado Rockies, Oakland Athletics.
WEST: Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago White Sox, Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Indians, Los Angeles Angels.
NORTHWEST: Milwaukee Brewers, San Diego Padres, Seattle Mariners, Texas Rangers, Kansas City Royals.
This is once again one of several different proposals out there as major sports leagues try to get back into action while weighing health with economics.
