The MLB season for 2020 will not be normal. That is a given, especially with the coronavirus. But there has been an interesting topic of discussion around the boards: Should certain records be recognized for this MLB season?
I'm talking about a pitcher who has an ERA of 1.00 or when a hitter hits for .400 or more. Those kind of records. There is a strong argument to be made about not recognizing these records with the shortened season. You will never know if a player will hit a slump or will struggle down the stretch. It's nearly impossible to maintain a strong stretch all the way through the baseball season. Plus, you don't know if that same player will be injured as well.
Therefore, I say "no" to recognizing these records if they happen. There are too many unknowns in a time where the biggest unknown is if there will be a baseball season.
My life! Food, sports, school. It's what it is!
