Baseball really needs a salary cap and salary floor.

After missing last season battling colon cancer, Trey Mancini has reported to O's camp and intends to play a full season. 

I'm all for chaining Mookie to the ground next time we play.

I fully agree with that, but two out of three still sucks. They're about to indemnify it.

I say go to NFL format that was used from 1990-2001. 12 teams from each league. 3 division winners and 3 wild card teams. Wild Card teams are the 3 best records regardless of division.

  • Top 2 seeds get a bye in the WC round. That is a reward for them winning during the regular season. Just like NFL, #1 seed gets the lower remaining seed and the #2 seed gets the higher remaining seed.
  • 3 vs. 6
  • 4 vs. 5

Playoff format

  • WC Round = Best of 5 (No off days - All games at the higher seed's winner's park.)
  • Division Round = Best of 5 (No off days)
  • Championship Round = Best of 7 (Normal schedule)
  • World Series = Best of 7 (Normal schedule)

I was a big fan of the no off days during the WC and division rounds but believe we should keep them for the championship series and world series.

And interleague would be 2 series on the road 2 series at home (if it's not already that way. For example: 

Braves@Yankees 

Braves @ Toronto 

Tampa @ Atlanta

Orioles @ Atlanta

All 4 game series

What about the Red Sox? A while back I came up with a proposal for a 158 game schedule that is extremely balanced. The most balanced schedule in MLB history. Using the Braves as my example and playing the AL East in interleague play here's what I came up with.

Brain fart regarding Boston.  A rotating split series.  Two home two away,  off day four travel in between.

White Sox hiring of La Russa not looking so good. He was charged with his second DUI earlier this year in Arizona according to recent court filings. Ken Rosenthal mentioned La Russa also doesn't support any type of protest against racial injustice. The White Sox have a really young team and this is shaping up to be a total disaster. Marcus Stroman already was asked on twitter what it would take for him to play for the Sox and he said "no amount of money". Ownerships stubbornness and refusal to consider anyone else may severely hamper the White Sox resurgence.

Don Mattingly, who presided over the biggest COVID-19 outbreak during the season and allowed his team to play the Phillies after knowing that team members had been exposed to the virus without notifying the other team, won the NL Manager of the Year Award.

Brian Snitker, who took a team to one game away from beating the eventual world champions that had nearly twice the payroll and who's COVID-19 protocols were above reproach, came in 4th.
