its not a perfect system the caveat is to win your division to avoid such a conundrum

my preference would be: add 2 teams to go 32, split up the teams by east/west, do 4 divisions of 8. division winners are IN. 2/3 place in each division do a best of 3 over 3 straight days (possible due to close proximity). then you start the best of 7s.

Iím fine with the wc  cause I donít look at the wild card as the playoffs...and this year showed how true that is...there really was zero difference btwn the tie breakers and the wild card

theres never been a wild card game to me itís just a one game extension of the regular season ...playoffs start tonight

Can we just go with 9 position players and 16 pitchers? Gotta give these managers MORE pitchers to change out.

theyll never do it but the fix is to put a pitching changes per inning limit.

you get 1 mid inning pitching change per inning unless the pitcher throws like 25 pitches or something. taking him out for "injury" makes him inactive for the next 3 days.

Iím surprised youíre against all these changes since youíre balls deep into the analytics world.

On another note...the Sox and their two out hits and RBIs this post season are something else.

there is no human being who likes making 100 pitching moves....its a simple exploitation of the rules that everyone does to try and win

if you legislate it out of the game nobody going be sad or anything

Clearly LA winning their first WS in 30 years is completely unacceptable so we have to prefer something that would normally be loathsome.

I've checked out.  Haven't made it past the 6th inning in any of these later starting games.  Getting too old to stay up past midnight and get up at 5am repeatedly.  If the Phils were in it, I'd tough it out.  But Boston-LA?  Beauty rest is too important.
