Generally speaking BMF has always considered myself a baseball purest, an old skool fan who likes things the way they were. But the older I get the more forgiving I am on a lot of progressive issues: instant replay for instance was desperately needed on HR’s and I fully expect it to eventually progress to correct blown calls at bases and I’m OK with that. In fact so long as we don’t mess with alls and strikes I’m cool with replay.
More wild card teams is cool with me too. Why not add a single game playoff for two WC teams per league? 2 extra teams get to taste the postseason and the WC races should be even wilder.
The truth is baseball, and society, need to evolve and the old fashioned method of 2 divisions and only 2 playoff teams per league seems incredibly boring.
The first intersquad game will be played today and finally we are getting to the point of some real games.
BMF can’t wait to see the following Mets play: Ike, Duda, Tejada, Rauch, Niese, Ramon Ramirez others too but these guys are on my Watch List.
