    So you're saying the Cleveland Indians blew a 3-1 lead against the Cubs?

    I think we've seen that story before, no?
    Screw sabermetics.

    Wait a minute, the dust up in Milwaukee was about Yadi interferring with Braun's AB? I think the umps should have let those two teams fight it out.

    No matter who won the fight between Yadi and Braun I would have been happy. Don’t care for either one lol

    It's in no way shocking the owners want this. Expanded playoffs will bring them extra revenue while also giving them an excuse to spend less money. I won't be surprised if all these changes are the new norm. They used a pandemic to push through all their ****** ideas and ensure their profit margins continue to increase.

    Baseball wants to eventually expand to 32 teams in the future, so the 16 team playoff was always going to happen. Not happy about but not surprise either.

    There is no way the MLBPA would sign off on that.

    As Cubswin on NSBB said:

    That's so absurd. It makes a 162 game season so meaningless. Teams will drastically shift usage to protect guys, imo, and also spend less because why build a projected 85-90 win team when 75-80 wins gives you just as good a chance to make the playoffs and you can save a couple million dollars.
    Anything that affects the players bottomline, negatively, the players are going to say, "wait a minute." There is NO WAY the MLBPA will sign off on the expanded PO beyond this year.

    That's one of the better sends I've ever seen by a 3b coach. No bobbles, Venable just saw that the 2B and SS weren't lined up properly to take a throw from the OF, and the P and 1B weren't in a position to cut-off. Great eye!

    Agreed. If they do this you are going to have to give some advantage to the home team. I think someone said in this forum a while ago make it where the road team/lower seeded team HAS to win beat the higher seeded team twice and if the home team wins the first game the series is over. Something like that.

    Lol that means nothing. They are the 1 team nobody wants to play because of their rotation. 3 #1 type starters when they are right. Gray had been himself until his last 2 starts which you can chalk up his bad performance to his injury. Bauer is a legit Cy Young candidate. Castillo can shut anybody down on any given day. No thanks in a winner go home. If you draw them, whatever... but nobody says “yeah we want to play the Reds!” I mean look at what the Nats just did with Scherzer, Stras, and Corbin. They were a WC team and nobody wanted to play them because of their pitching.
