Add former National Michael Morse to the list of people that want an asterisk on the 2020 World Series champion.
One of the biggest topics of conversation surrounding Major League Baseball's shortened season is whether or not this year's champion will have really "earned it" the way past winners have.
Playing almost 100 fewer regular season games clearly doesn't work for Morse.
No way you play 60 games and get the label World Series Champions.— Michael Morse (@MorseBeWithU) August 1, 2020
What's made baseball's situation more difficult than the NBA and NHL is the fact the regular season hadn't yet started when sports were first shut down. A 60 game schedule is even tougher for so many to accept because of the fact that the sport takes pride in its longevity. Baseball is supposed to be a marathon, and 60 games versus 162 and expanded playoffs are clearly very different.
That being said, with so many other factors surrounding the sport like the mental toll this pandemic and MLB restrictions can have on players, it's fair to say this is still an incredibly difficult landscape to win in, 60 games or not.
