    Yeah, I miss opening day.

    I am often "sick" on opening day if my work schedule allows for it.

    They were spitballing on MLB on Sirius about implementing some proposed changes in this obviously shortened season.

    NL use of the DH, and a 14 team playoff. Also neutral site playoffs, though I don't know what round(s) they were referring to.

    These are changes that will most likely happen at some point anyway. Why not in this abbreviated season? Doesn't mean they will stick.

    Thoughts?

    all suck. How about a four team playoff - two best teams in each league? Yeah, works for me! And no DH anywhere - less offense should equal quicker game. As for neutral sites, they were probably talking about using the domes for the playoff games in December.

    I'm all for a four team playoff, but I think they will stand pat before they subtract teams. I recently stated basketball and half the teams making it to the playoffs was a joke. Yeah, the neutral site in the playoffs was for this shortened season. I just don't recall if they said every playoff game.

    I should think if Los Angeles or, California or San Diego were in the playoffs (hey, with 14 teams...) they wouldn’t need a neutral site, but Minnesota, Boston, New York, etc.?

    I feel like more Southern teams have domes than northern ones! But it’s just five...

    I'm not sure what happened, but I had more typed out than what was posted. Probably deleted it during my spellcheck sweep.

    Regarding the DH, I know you aren't a fan billy, but the AL getting rid of it will probably never happen in our lifetime, if ever. The talking heads seem to think the NL will adapt it within the next five years. The status quo is fine with me. They are going to do what they feel will grow the game, so I try not to take a hardline stance against anything. I'm just going to enjoy my favorite sport for as long as I have left.

    I fear you're right on the DH poisoning the National League. I know it isn't going anywhere in the American League short of a Festivus miracle.

    I'd hate the Dh in the NL. They also need to do away with interleague play, those match ups stopped being interesting years ago.

    Good day for a cub fan, Woods 20 k game on ESPN and game 7 of the WS on fox
    Dealing with it.
