It's an abomination.

Teams play 162 games already. Divisional series were bad enough, but risking your 90+ wins derived over 6 months on a ONE-GAME playoff?

Admittedly, my opinion is colored by the Mariners having won 116 games in 2001 and not even making the World Series. F#@king Yankees. I hate them.

But, you know, I don't like the DH or interleague play, either.

Whatever. My opinion doesn't matter, and I'll just do my best to enjoy whatever product they put out there.

Jays going to be good this year?

Nay.

They should instead consider shortening the season. Baseball is the most boring sport. It only becomes entertaining if I'm at the game with a group of friends and hammered.

Just trying to keep you honest.

Nay; my view is that to the greatest extent possible, the participants in the world series should reflect their relative performance in the 162 game season.

This doesn't indicate that I'm satisfied with baseball's adherence to archaic rules and practices that Ned Hanlon or John McGraw(if they were dug up, revivified, and stuck in the dugout with a team uniform)would have little problem with. For example, the continued resistance to as small a step as a single DH, instead of moving forward to say, a 6-man batting order.

If they do this, they should just allow the players to use performance enhancing drugs. They are ruining baseball.

Clandestinely, they already do. It's the same with hockey, football etc.
