Giants catcher Buster Posey has admitted to being on the fence about playing in 2020. Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

Buster Posey is considering playing in 2020, but he hasn’t committed to it, either.

The San Francisco Giants catcher became the latest big name to admit that he has not yet officially decided on whether to play in 2020, and wants to see how things look in a few weeks.

Posey makes a good point. MLB isn’t forcing anyone to make a decision right now, so there’s no reason to rush into one. Posey is right that a lot of players are probably planning on playing but taking a wait-and-see approach to things.

Posey is certainly not the only star player weighing whether to play or not. Some already think the league will have issues calling a champion legitimate with a 60-game regular season, but that issue will be even bigger if several star players don’t even play.
