With the playoffs set to begin next week, the 60-game campaign of 2020 certainly deserves a place right alongside those 162-game, six-month-long marathons of past years. “They’re probably feeling like they would if they had played 162 games, really, with the mental drain and everything else that was on ’em,” said Atlanta Braves manager Brian Snitker, who guided his team to a third straight NL East title.
