        I wish they had taken this opportunity to knock back to 154 permanently. If not far fewer.

        A 100-game season would have such higher quality.
        Yeah, I got my email from the Red Sox that they were finalizing the schedule at 162 games. I checked my MLB app, where my tickets are and I seem to have tickets for Opening Day. My package is weekday games with the exception of Opening Day and Patriots Day. I'm hoping they don't take them away. I figured if those other games weren't going to be made up I would have a better shot at keeping them. I'll check in another day or so to see if they remain there. I already blocked off the day at work so I can go. **crossing fingers**

          Carlos Correa to the Twins. Three years, $105.3M.

          That's... surprising.

            Next up we need a couple pitchers. That's a pretty big move. But if the choice was Story for 5 yrs or Correa for 3 at the same cost. They took the better player with the thought that neither would stay the full term maybe.

              It looks like they added three days to the back end of the schedule and are adding three doubleheaders per team to make it up.

              Also just read today that there will be more balanced scheduling starting next year. And they’ve gotten rid of the best tiebreaker in sports. No more Game 163s, it’ll all be decided by formulas now if there’s a tie.

                Are doubleheaders still 7 innings? Morally these are monstrous, but they are so much easier to take. (Maybe I'm just starting to hate baseball.)

                Edit: I looked it up. DH are 9 again. They may dredge the ghost meatball up for longer games someday but for now thank god it's dead.

                  You'll be happy? sad? to hear MLB is considering bringing back a man on 2nd for extra innings at least to start the season. Due to the lockout compressing everything.

                    I'd rather they play the whole season with a 40-man roster than bring back that sacrilege.

                        Although I hate to see this go, considering how many teams they keep adding to the playoffs, they had to eventually cut down the number of post-162 games they can play in order to get the World Series done before December.

                          Uggh, then they should have stopped at two WC teams. That made sense. If you don't win your division, you have to play the extra game. One WC team didn't punish the WC team enough, more than 2 punishes division winners. How hard was this to understand?

                            Reduce the season to 132 games. Go to 2 divisions x 8 teams per. Only the divisional winners advance to a 5-game LCS. C'est tout.

                                Schwarber to Phillies to join Castellanos. Fun fact: the Phillies had the worst defense in MLB last year and added the statistically two worst available OFs to it. Gonna be a lot of bloopers coming from there.

                                JFC the NL East is going to be murderers row though. Mets, Braves, and Phillies all adding bigly. The Nats are going to lose 110 games.
