How would you view a World Series win in 2020?

What if the Angels won it all?

Obviously there is a lot that still has to happen, but I wanted to ask this hypothetical question, because who doesn’t love hypothetical questions, right?

Let’s say the baseball season resumes in 2020. Let’s say it’s for 82 games like reported. If the Angels were to win the World Series after playing only half of a season, how would you view it?

Would you view it as a legitimate championship, or would you put an asterisk next to it.

Personally, it’s a legitimate championship and should be viewed as such. Here’s where I stand on this. It doesn’t matter if you play 162 games or 82, what matters is how you do in October. If the playoff format is the same, and you got to get through three of the best teams in order to win, I don’t think it makes a difference playing half a season. Plus, if there are more playoff teams added, then it’s actually more impressive coming out of the playoffs victorious.

I just wanted to ask everyone and hear what your different thoughts are on this potential subject.
