What impresses me so far is the speed off the bat. These guys are not getting lucky rollers, these balls are getting smoked at 95+ over and over. I’ll be the first to admit that the Nats and Phils have awful bullpens but hey, these were supposed to be 2 contending teams.
With a 60 game season and expanded playoffs, there is very likely a team destined to lose 90 games in a 160 game season making the playoffs when the cutoff is 60 games. On the flip side a team that would have made the playoffs in a normal year is going to miss out with this year's format.
