Baseball is dying...

two 15 team leagues AND an extra wild card per league?

2011 showed us we don't need this garbage

I would say you can not be more wrong, but what is the point? You will only over achieve and say something even more ridiculous.

15 Team Leagues. What is wrong with this idea? Every other sport has inter league play. It does not detract from Steelers vs Cowboys. Lakers vs Celtics. And who knows maybe someday...they will have an AL and NL that plays the same game.

A single game between the wildcards is awesome. A game 7 to kick the playoffs off. Plus, it favors the division winners as they can set their schedule and the WC have to line-up their ace.

Now, if they can take their heads completely out their a$$ and do some instant replay.

just do away with the "leagues" and have 1 giant league with top 12 teams making the playoffs.

And have DH for all games.

Automatic replay for all close calls.

Computer strikezone.

And tie games end in a Home Run Derby.

Implement a World Draft

Expand rosters to 30 players

Require 40% of roster be born in USA (excluding Puerto Rico since they dont want to be americans anyway)

Require all Shortstops be from San Pedro de Macoris

Require any Pitcher who hits more than 1 hitter per game gets pegged in the a$$ by the biggest roid user on the team

I'm not going to respond to your anger thrusted in my direction because that is only what you want.

I WILL however say is this: 15 teams per league = inter-league play EVERY DAY......what a farging mess that will be.

because there is absolutely no need for it

can't wait for the NBA to get back...

So baseball is a mess because they will play interleague games every day. And you feel there is no need to play interleague games every day.

Ok. Great argument you have there.

And what does having the NBA back do? The NBA sucks. Overpaid babies refusing to play defense, run real offenses, and play more than 2 times a week. I'd rather watch them play street ball instead of that boring garbage they trot out there every night.

Lighten up Francis...need some cranberry juice?

Why?

And what type of an answer is because? Kids call BS when you use that as an answer.

Again.....every sport does it. Keeping the teams apart does nothing but detract from the game. How many greats did not ever...ever...ever face each other because they were in separate leagues?

Think of the possibilities. Mets vs Yankees on the last weekend of the season with playoffs on the line for both teams.

The game moves a t the pace of a slug. Interleague play should have been adopted many many years ago.

The current setup also gives NL teams a 1 in 16 chance to get a playoff berth, while AL teams have a 1 in 14 chance, if all else were equal(and in mnay ways it's not). Assuming "equality" right now AL teams have a better chance to get the extra revenue that goes with a playoff berth. Moving Houston to the AL West makes a lot of sense and rectifies that situation.

Good point.

Pittsburgh now has another excuse why they have been horrible.
