MLB owners and players agree to a 60-game 2020 season: The two sides are still working on a health and safety guideline for the season.

I loathe thinking this, but I would be surprised if the planned MLB "regular season" does not get cut short due to public pressure if Covid19 x regular seasonal flu hits hard in a couple months.

So, on the new rules for this season, do we think the universal DH or the runner on 2nd for extra innings are one-and-done or here to stay?

I miss sports as much as anyone around here, but in addition to FLsportsman's concern, I'm also skeptical that the US will pull off any sustained sporting activities this year, as we don't appear to have the collective attention span or commitment to stick to the required COVID-19 measures. I'd very much like to be proven wrong on that.
