Honestly they should adopt the hockey/basketball format where the top 8 teams make the playoffs with the division winners getting the top 3 seeds. Do a best of 3 for the wild card round, best of 5 for the division round then jump to best of 7 for the last 2.

Absolutely not. Half the league should not be given the opportunity to be rewarded. The regular season should matter.

Hate this proposal.
Same. The Oprah meme was in jest.

It's not "Participation Trophy For All" level of bad yet, but it's slowly getting there. The postseason was meant for the best of the best to duke it out, not for all teams who play .500 or better (sometimes lower) in the regular season to get a second try. That's how I see it as a fan of the sport.

Now as for the commissioner, team owners, advertisers, players, etc. looking at extra revenue potential, cities holding fan's excitement longer into the season & postseason with more teams in the hunt (whether or not deserving), I kinda get where they're coming from too.

Just wanted to say that I just bought our first Braves tickets for the 2020 season. YAY!

If you guys watch the May 26th or 27th games against St. Louis I'll be the fan in the Braves jersey....lol

EDIT: And I have NO idea how I convinced my wife to travel to Atlanta and go to 2 games back to back.

The latest excuse for why Jose Altuve clinged to his jersey after the notorious walk-off under scrutiny has changed from not wanting to embarrass his wife, to an unfinished tattoo.

Next Up: Either an unsightly birthmark or chilled nips.

It’s just absurd.

Way too many coincidences going on here.

-The mysterious source / now-deleted Twitter account which leaked the buzzer story was 100% spot-on with all other leaks prior relating to the scandal.
-The varying explanations for why he clung to the jersey that particular time, but not other times.
-The prioritized run into the dugout to quickly change. Has any player done this before? Skipped the celebratory dog-pile (as the hero) with such haste to put the championship shirt on first & foremost?

None of which proves guilt, but this will forever remain a mystery in the court of public opinion unless a major bombshell is dropped later down the line.

I get being upset but this is disgusting and proves that fans take crap WAY too seriously.

I've known some guys with some serious gambling problems including betting on baseball. For them to lose on games and find out the Red Sox and Astros were known cheaters it would send them over the edge.

This is 2020.
You don't make physical threats.
You don't retaliate with violence (take note, opposing pitchers wanting payback).
We're not a barbaric society, and supposedly, should have moved on from the "I don't like what you did, so you're getting a beating" way of handling life.
And you especially don't bring families / children into the equation.
