    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
    fucken idiot manfred

    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.

    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.

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

    Have fun with that White Sox

    but but he had and explanation

    "At times, I don't feel it, but I think I got on my heels," Grandal said. "And when you get on your heels, you can't do anything. You can't move. The first ball I went down for, I thought it was in my glove. Then all of a sudden it was behind. I was trying to figure out why. Then the second one happened and I was like, 'I really need to figure out why these balls are getting by, because I feel like they should be right in front of me.'

    "I came inside, and that was pretty much it. Setup-wise I was just on my heels. I never really got to my toes. In this game, that's huge, because it allows you to move. And when you can't move, then you can do anything."
