The MLB playoffs will take place in a bubble.

According to Ken Rosenthal, the league and the players’ union have reached a deal to play the postseason in a bubble setting. ESPN also confirmed that the MLB will move to a bubble for the playoffs. A handful of stadiums would be in play, and the World Series would be at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, according to ESPN’s report.

This is probably a smart call from the MLB. After all, we’ve watched the NBA and the NHL use bubbles, and both leagues have had incredible success.

The NFL hasn’t used a bubble, and has had a lot of success through one week of regular season action. So, it might not be necessary, but we know that the MLB has had some problems.

Now, the league is shifting to a bubble for the postseason, which should eliminate any problems going forward.

I’m not sure how anyone could be against the bubble system. At this point, I don’t think there’s any doubt at all that they work, and work well.

The MLB had some major growing pains during the early days of their season during the coronavirus pandemic. Players tested positive and games had to be postponed. Those problems are pretty much gone, but a bubble system should make sure they don’t come back in the postseason.

All the way around, this seemed like an obvious call to make.
