It would bring in less profit across the board and that is why it will never happen. No owner is going to vote to cut 2 weeks off the season. They would lose the revenue from home games and generate no extra revenue by starting the playoff earlier.


Then how about if they just extended the playoffs and kept the 162 game schedule? Or does that just mess with everything and make it too long?

If you extend the playoffs two weeks the World Seris wouldn't be until the middle of November.

A-Rod is hands down in the AL but it's the NL that gets interesting. Hanley Ramirez? Reyes? Holliday, Wright, Pujols? It's wide open.

One name that never gets mentioned here and is flying so far under the radar that he's almost subterranian is Joe Blanton. What a year for Joe Annonymous.

I think I've said that I'd take Lincecum over Hughes in a fantasy league pre season. If I'm a real gm, I'll take Hughes, but NL West teams just can't hit and that makes a huge difference.
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.

:-? A 5.29 ERA 1.39 Whip and a .313 BAA since the AS break. Blanton has been very Joe Average.
