10:51 AM PT -- Turns out ... MLB might not even need the Nats-Marlins series to complete its season -- according to New York Post baseball insider Joel Sherman.
League officials, per Sherman, are kicking around the idea of having total winning percentage determine playoff seeding ... which would allow some teams to play a full 60-game slate, while others could play just 50.
MLB has previously used the winning percentage model back in 1981 ... when a strike-shortened season forced teams to play a different number of games.
The Washington Nationals players have VOTED against traveling to Miami to play a 3-game series with the Marlins in the wake of a COVID outbreak ... and ya gotta wonder, is this a wrap for MLB?!
The Nats were scheduled to play a 3-game series with the Marlins beginning Friday and ending on Sunday.
