2020 MLB Playoffs Bracket

Batter up.

Below is the 2020 MLB Playoffs Bracket. You know, the postseason we did not know we would have because the season didn’t appear to be happening at all.

Somehow, Major League Baseball’s teams gutted out a 60-game schedule, and we are left with 16. In a normal year, it would be ten teams standing, but with the short season, MLB threw its teams a bone and expanded the playoffs. This left us with some teams in the postseason that it’s rare to see, and will give us some very quick eliminations on the front end.

There are more differences from a normal postseason. In addition to the best-of-three Wild Card series, of which there will be eight (four American League, four National League), the later rounds will be played at neutral sites. The higher seeds will host all games in the opening round. Once a team advances to the Division Series, they are heading into the playoff bubble. Because it’s 2020 and we need more twists, the ALDS and ALCS will be played in National League parks, while the NLDS and NLCS will be in American League parks. The 2020 World Series will take place in Arlington, Texas.

This is a lot to absorb, so we will stop there and proceed with haste to the bracket.
