I've always thought the divisional series should be 7 games; I'm just upset that they're considering it now because the Yankees are probably complaining about it.

Soooo, people were unemployed in the days prior to the 1970's?

Day weekend WS games would be great.


yes, before 1970 no one worked.


Also, Fox owns the World Series now; prior to 1970 the money maker was attendance, not TV. People all over the country would ditch work to go see the game.

No. They want more games because they get revenue from 2 more games. Or, if you think about it, 2 more. 1 each for each team.

They should just get rid of the Wild Card altogether, expand each league by a few more teams and go to 2 league/4 division/4 team setup. After 13 years I'm completely sick of teams that can't win their division making it to the World Series.

The reason I like the WC is the fact that some divisions are overly stacked and it gives a team who is some cases better then some division winners a playoff spot.

Would you rather see one division and the top four teams recordwise make it in?

I wouldn't mind seeing something along those lines.

I would LOVE a

7-7-9

format.

Cut the season short 7 games.

A sport that has 162 frickin regular season games needs more than 5 games for a series.
