A few years ago, I was at a bar and semi-regular (Which I didn’t pay much attention to) Have the best season after any sport. He was a true #PleaseLikeMySport hockey fan, and I felt (and still do) that MLB playoffs surpassed NHL playoffs as the most enjoyable. Maybe I was still influenced by their participating breed from time to time and I will feel different now. Maybe I wanted to annoy a kind of restless hockey fan for whom I was annoyed for a long time. Slightly from column A, slightly from column B …
Of course, the wild-card coin flip game is stupid, and there should be at least two out of three. But that at least makes the division worthy, which only the NFL has at the moment. And yes, the sections themselves can be silly, but that’s another discussion. As long as we have, and as long as the teams between them are playing on almost the same schedule, they should only be measured against each other. It’s rarely perfect, but it’s closer than people give it credit.
I like Wrote last night, This will probably be for the current format. Owners showed an appetite for expanded playoffs last year, as networks paid big for more playoff games. They will want more of them. Players take a position for this year, knowing that means more play-off spots Less incentive to build a good team instead of a medium team, which means less money for free agents, and then less money for each player. But how tough can they be if the CBA talks become really ugly? They have to trade it for something. Unless we have a full year Lockout or more, which is probably MLBPA anyway.
What baseball should actually do is cut the regular season and not increase the number of teams in the playoffs, But games. Not the best or eleven, and play every day. Make play-off baseball like regular-season baseball Respectful of how teams can actually deploy their roster. But I will not sit in the hot oven for that.
There will be plenty of time to discuss this in the hot stove winter. Even in the spring, if the siege that seems inevitable goes so far.
For now, the last chance to enjoy this kind of drama. For the first time, the Dodgers-Giants playoff series is on the cards, unless the Cardinals take down the Devil Magic game’s T-Rex, which is the only time the Dodgers have been widely acclaimed around the Cardinals’ Devil Magic baseball.
There’s also a chance at another Ray-Yankees dance, full of rich vs. poor narratives that don’t really apply, but make good copies. The Astros-White Sox একটি a 2005 World Series rematch (when Houston NL was among the kids) এbeen confirmed for so many weeks that most of us forgot that it was almost too good for a series. Not the division series and the championship series. Brewers pitching vs. Braves lineup, even without Ronald Acuna Jr., Fear
However it breaks down, the MLB playoffs still provide the most bang for the buck. Yes, the games are long, but I have nothing else to do. And when you invest, you never know how long the games will last. Postseason doesn’t create as much excitement as baseball, as you wait for the next pitch that can turn your interior into a mosquito. And that’s every night, at least until the World Series. There aren’t as many previous decisions as you in the first round of the NBA. Games don’t look almost the same in the NHL. Moments come out a little more. Catching Bates and Bessering since last year. Joy Ray travels on crazy footsteps. All those Astros Homer. Daniel Hudson throws his gloves at a distance towards the end. Howie Kendrick’s habit of series-winning Homers. They just roll up on the video reel in our minds.
Fear can wait. Let’s enjoy what we have for the next month.
