2011-09-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Good afternoon Steven .... happy after Labor Day lack of division races baseball to you. Given the length of the regular season, and baseball's attempts to keep the playoffs from running into November, do you see ANY chance that MLB would actually move BACK to a 154-game regular season at some point? (I know ... what about the 8 games of lost revenue ...)
(dianagramr from NYC)
Yo-ho, D. I hope not. I like the 162-game schedule. Actually, I envy the old 200something-game schedules the PCL used to maintain, you know, the one where Tony Lazzeri hit 60 home runs just 'cause the season went on forever. I agree the season shouldn't be played in the winter, which is why I fantasize about a return to scheduled doubleheaders, even split-admission DHs. And yeah, not much going on in the races. I guess Angels-Rangers counts, but I have a hard time believing. (Steven Goldman)
