As KC Royals fans await the return of their Boys in Blue, the MLB is discussing another potential solution to help save the 2020 season.

They say that good things come to those who wait. For those anxious about the KC Royals possibly not playing this season, hopefully that statement becomes a reality.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the MLB has joined several other leagues in postponing play until further notice. There have been a couple of preliminary discussions surrounding a potential start to the season, though. First, it was an Arizona-only campaign. Then, it was a temporary league realignment with 15 teams in Arizona and 15 in Florida. On Monday night, reports about a third discussion surfaced.

Per CBS Sports, another state has entered the equation. In addition to teams being sent to Arizona or Florida, Texas has emerged as a tertiary option. The article notes that all three locations have stadiums with at least some form of a roof, which could play a major role in ensuring games would be played as scheduled.

Not much additional info has been released and, as with every preliminary discussion thus far, keep in mind they’re merely talks. No plans have been proposed, no plans have been made and not everyone is going to be on board with the same idea from the jump.

It feels like it’s been months without scheduled baseball when in reality, we’re less than 30 days into what would have been the 2020 MLB regular season. Perhaps within the next couple of months, one discussion will turn into something greater and we can return to watching live baseball on our television screens.

While we’re still far away from it, this is a positive sign nonetheless. The league as a business-oriented entity wants to play just as badly as we want to watch as fans. Only time will tell if things will take a turn for the better.

Again, maybe good things really do come to those who wait.
