I will say one advantage to having pitchers bat is they can get plunked should they have thrown at a player previously.I like the canning of divisions and playoffs if we can't(and I know they won't) reduce the season. Also correct that they'll never do it
I think baseball needs to stick with 162 games, it's what sets it apart from other sports. If anything, the parity of recent years kinda shows that it can take that many games to sort out who's best.
Then again, if I were in charge I'd can divisions and playoffs and return to the old pennant system. 162 games to sort out who's number 1 in both leagues, then a 7-game series for it all.
But that's something that would make less money, so they'll never do it.
I just don't want baseball to turn into the NFL.
Also, I don't know what your timeline is but if there is a Sox home playoff game happening (starting next week and all through World Series )check out the area around the ballpark for the atmosphere. Get to one of the spots around Fenway such as Boston Beerworks orPete, really hope you're wrong here, as I would love to see my Tribe continue on to the World Series.
Cask & Flagon way early to get a spot near the taps (to be able to get bartenders attention) and soak in Red Sox Nation.
