Major League Baseball officially delayed the start of the regular season by "at least" two weeks on March 12th, and it seems likely that the delay could be stretched for a significant period of time. Boras' June 1 proposal would involve playing all 162 games, but if the season started July 1, he would trim it down to a 144-game season.

The super-agent submitted proposals to Major League Baseball for a 162-game season beginning June 1 and a 144-game season that would start July 1, according to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times. According to Boras, contingencies and obstacles have been examined, including moving playoff games and the World Series to warm-weather, neutral sites or domed stadiums.

Under Boras' plan, wild-card games would take place Dec. 3, followed by the division series from Dec. 5-9, the league championship series Dec. 11-17, and the World Series from Dec. 19-26. The ALCS and NLCS would be scheduled for December 11-17.

"Opening Day may be postponed", Trout says, "but unity, hope, and community don't have to be".

There would be no days off in postseason series, and games would be played in Los Angeles, Anaheim, San Diego, Miami, Seattle, Arizona, Milwaukee, Toronto, Houston, St. Petersburg, Fla., and Arlington, Texas. And that's just the beginning of the issues that would need to be addressed.

"We have it all mapped out", Boras said. "The difference is how the playoffs are run and where they're played".
