    A system that punishes greatness and rewards mediocrity

    if you're going to do that, what's the point of a 162-game season?
    mlb is slowly becoming the nba
    here's a better idea...
    one wild card per league, and expand lds to best of seven

    I get that they're doing it because they can make more money, but they need to realize that they're damaging the sport - that reaching the postseason will not be much of an accomplishment anymore. And what happens when some sub-.500 team catches lightning in a bottle and upsets a 95+ win team? That's far more likely in baseball than in basketball just based on the nature of the game. Nobody wants to see that happen as it would greatly diminish the WS.

    Manfred is in way over his head. MLB needs a commissioner who understands the history of baseball, and wants to preserve its integrity going forward. How about fixing how bad the umpiring has gotten, making the DH universal (or removing it entirely), and stop adding stupid things like the extra innings/runner on 2nd travesty.

    Intelligent ideas like this don't belong in pro sports anymore, brother.

    The nattering nabobs have taken over everything we loved as kids, and we're just going to have to sit here and watch our beloved game get ass raped until we die alone and afraid...

    Sincerely,

    Mr. Positive

    The AL games today were very boring.

    Astros/Rays look like the clear best teams

    I remember Margot of the Rays trying to steal home in game 5 of the WS and Kershaw read it....game changing play.

    Rays had all the momentum and that would've erased a 3-0 lead. An underrated part of that WS victory over the Rays.

    With a big assist from Muncy.

    Still awed that Kersh had the wherewithal to step off the rubber before firing home.

    Just watched that clip of Arozorena swiping home. That kid has a lot of moxie. I wonder if he'll rise to long-term greatness or go full Puig...

    I had forgotten how awful Yasmani Grandal is in the playoffs.

    Have fun with that White Sox
