Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged-in Mets fans and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

This week’s Reacts survey focused on the return—or at least the attempted return—of Major League Baseball for a shortened season this year. Asked whether or not it’s a good idea for the league to try to play out the season, just 53 percent of respondents said yes.

And with the country and world still in the midst of a pandemic, fans who took part in the survey aren’t confident that a 60-game season will be played to completion, even if we assume the season gets underway in the first place. A healthy majority—59 percent—expect the league to be unable to finish the shortened season.

And here are the other results from the survey:

  • 65 percent of respondents say Rob Manfred is the worst commissioner in sports.
  • 47 percent of respondents are happy with a 60-game season.
  • 68 percent of respondents blame owners for labor negotiations.
