Welcome to SB Nation Reacts (formerly known as SB Nation Fanpulse - why they changed it I can’t say, people just liked it better this way), a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send 30 polls to plugged in fans from each team. Royals fans, sign up HERE to join SBN Reacts.

Well baseball is returning with a 60-game schedule set to begin around July 24. Even with baseball back, fans in our SBN Reacts poll are ambivalent about this shortened season, with only 47 percent saying they are happy with a 60-game season.

There is also a lot of skepticism MLB will even get in all 60 games. With coronavirus cases back on the rise in Florida and Texas, and several players already testing positive, only 41 percent of our respondents think MLB will be able to finish a 60-game season.

With so much uncertainty of risk, only 53 percent of fans even think it’s a good idea to play out this season.

As far as those acrimonious negotiations between players and owners, our SBN Reacts fans put more blame on the owners.

Oh, and Commissioner Rob Manfred sucks. Don’t take my word for it, ask the fans!
