Is there 'one level too many' of minor leagues? I have no clue, just asking.

It depends on what context you mean.  There’s a development aspect, a revenue aspect, and of course a control aspect where you want as many players as possible because you never know who might make it.

Last I knew there was A ball, AA ball and AAA ball.


I see guts getting moved to the majors from AA



Is A-ball necessary?

I don't see they are going to do this. Perhaps I should check out Korean baseball and see how they work around things.

Batter and catcher in batter's box. No 'social distancing'

Man on first vs first baseman. Again, same issue.

Wait, so the players want universal DH and expanded playoffs for both this season AND next? WTF?

https://www.si.com/mlb/indians/news/mlb-players-want-70-games-not-60-manfred-and-owners-quickly-reject-proposal

A lot can change in 24 hours, and it sounds like Major League Baseball could be headed back for a standstill again when it comes to playing a shortened 2020 season.

Thursday the Major League Baseball Players Association proposed a 70-game regular-season schedule, and right away that proposal was rejected by MLB commissioner Rob Manfred.

The proposal put out by owners on Wednesday included a 60-game slate. The proposal came after Manfred and MLBPA executive director Tony Clark met for a reported four hours in Phoenix on Tuesday.

Now though things again for a 2020 campaign seem up in the air, as it could be the 10 games that the players want that could cost the entire season to be nixed.

ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported that the players association were looking for the season to go from July 19 to September 30.

Along with that players would get full prorated play, a universal DH for 2020 and 2021, minimum pool for playoff shares in 2020 based on rounds played; $50 million if full playoff is staged, expanded playoffs to 16 teams in 2020 and 2021, and a mutual waiver of any possible grievances under the March agreement.

The comments from Manfred sounded almost defeated at this point, as everyone it seems is just tired and all parties have to decide if there’s going to be a season or not.

"This needs to be over," Manfred said. "Until I speak with owners, I can't give you a firm deadline."

Both sides are to blame at this point, and if no season winds up getting played it may be a blow to the game that this time it may never recover from.
