The latest idea on what a St. Louis Cardinals season could look like
Two major ideas have been floated so far as ideas for what the St. Louis Cardinals 2020 season could look like, but what is the most recent idea?
Over the last few weeks, ideas for both the “Arizona plan” and the “Florida plan” have been leaked into the general public with mixed results. Both plans have holes, but the general plan seems to be localized games in one or multiple geographical areas, all without fans. For the St. Louis Cardinals, I’d prefer they play in their spring park in Florida if they can’t be playing at Busch.
However, a third plan has been floated that includes another state, Texas. This plan, written first on by R.J. Anderson of CBS Sports, would likely combine the best of both plans.
The main thoughts with all of these plans are to have players and coaches quarantined in their respective locations, but adding Texas to the mix now leaves three warm-weather locations and multiple domed stadiums that could be used to get as many games in per day as possible.

Adding Texas to the mix adds Minute Maid Park and Globe Life Field as two possible domed stadiums that teams could use.
To keep everything safe, it would likely take 10 teams in each location as three separate leagues, but the details haven’t been released.
Eventually, teams would have to play outside of their own league (playoffs), but that would hopefully be at the point where a better system for safety could be set up.
Rob Manfred, in an interview with Fox Business, said, “From our perspective, we don’t have a plan, we have lots of ideas.” Everything is still in flux.
Eventually, all the ideas that the MLB has will formulate itself into a full plan, but for now, speculation is the only thing that we can use to try and figure out what the league is planning.
