MLB commissioner Rob Manfred sent a letter to the MLBPA on Sunday offering to nix the expanded playoff field and universal designated hitter for next season if a full campaign cannot be played in 2020. Players had been set to vote on Sunday on whether to accept a 60-game season, so the offer might be an attempt to sweeten the pot.

Players are concerned about giving up leverage of playoffs for naught.
Theoretically, Leipzig could also save itself across the finish line. This requires a victory against BVB. Problem: Since the beginning of the ghost games, the opponents have liked to travel to Leipzig, RB did not even get a three against tail light Paderborn. "Of course there is a bit of pressure," said coach Julian Nagelsmann. «But we have the match balls and I am 100 percent convinced that we will use one. Leverkusen and Gladbach would like to trade with us. »
For Leverkusen, not only the form speaks for the game at Hertha BSC, but also the statistics. Bayer have not lost an away game since the beginning of February, while Hertha recently had to digest three defeats in a row. «We know that there is more at stake for us than for Hertha.

On paper it could be easy for Gladbach on Saturday. Borussia will play for relegated SC Paderborn, who have not won a game since January. Nevertheless, the pressure is greatest at Gladbach, because as the only threesome you can't make it into the premier class on your own.
Even if Borussia wins in Paderborn and at the end against Hertha, with 65 points it could only be enough to place fifth. Which would be quite astonishing, since so many counters have always been at least in fourth place since the introduction of the three-point rule.
"We all said that we want to achieve our big goal, Champion League," said Gladbach coach Marco Rose. However, the native of Leipzig has to do without the injured top attackers Marcus Thuram and Alassane Plea. In defense, Nico Elvedi also has a yellow card suspension.
