Lol. That's great. Who knew Pedro was such a big Aussie Rugby fan? :-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I agree. Baseball is the only sport were the dimensions of the home stadium actually impact a game.

I wouldn't be opposed to one game at a neutral site, and getting rid of the all-star charade. No nine game series. Seven games, opener neutral, in Miami.

I don't like it. I do think the wild card series should be 7 though

I love the idea of it, 9 games may be a bit much but the awards weekend would be awesome and hall of fame stuff all in one. Plus playing the first 2 games at neutral sites would generate more revenue for both the teams playing and the 2 neutral site stadiums plus it would give more people a chance to goto a WS

Boras is an idiot. That completely takes away from the fan bases that waited for who knows how long to see their team in the world series. Making them then travel to see their team would be ridiculous.

YES i agree totally, the playoff format is FINE, neutral sites is the worst thing i have ever heard of. I still think its stupid that the ASG decides home field, team with the better regular season record should get it.

that would mean if Red Soxs made it to world series they would technically have like 5 or 6 Home games since every where they go they got fans. They should just keep it the way it is. It's fine.
