I agree one game is stupid although I guess it does create drama. I think best of 3 would be a good compromise. I'm ok on the first round being best of 5.

And with their pitching, although obviously other teams have better records, I fear the Indians of Cleveland.
Buy high, sell low.

Too many playoff games. And now these guys all have an extra tension filled game. I'd certainly vote to cut back the post season but I doubt MLB or its advertisers would agree.

Someday the world series will end after the start of spring training.

It'll be just like Soccer.....

As an Orioles fan I'd have been happy to see the season end the same day it started. \_(ツ)_/

But as long as we are wishing for stuff that'll never happen....I'd like them to shorten the regular season (154 games again?) and have teams toss in some scheduled doubleheaders. End the thing 10 to 14 days earlier, have every postseason series at least a three-gamer (preferably five). Let the October Classic finish in October.

My last (and even more remote) wish is for daylight WS games. Yes, that one is entirely nostalgia-based. I have a lot of fond memories of the nuns rolling TVs into our classrooms to watch Series games in the early 60s. And I remember racing home to catch the end of the 7th Game of the 1960 Series. My Mom, bless her soul, would try to catch me up on what I had missed as best she could given her limited baseball vocabulary. </oldfartmusings>

On a side note Yelich is a 2 run homer away from the first NL triple crown in 81 years. That would be great to see if he can pull it off.

The strange thing about this is the loser doesn't get eliminated. That in itself is very unusual.

Making the Wild Card game a series would devalue the division championships, but, more importantly, it would extend the season into November...and only Derek Jeter would enjoy that.

I'm not so sure about the Dodgers/Rockies winner being in the World Series....least not as automatically as you imply. If the Cubs or the Brewers get hot, they could easily get there...oh, and the dark horse in the race...who nobody gives a, watch out for the 'Baby Braves'!


Guess Cubs wont get hot.....
