What is InterLeague Play?

Postby TEKTON » Tue Jun 08, 2004 8:14 pm

Spring Training part 2 for some ball clubs? You got CIN throwin Jung Bong and TB throwin, well I dont know who. And then David Wells comes out of nowhere and pitches versus BOS. Suppose he saw an opp to get back in the AL. Best matchup so far, Wells vs. Pedro

Interleague play- an idea devised to take away the purity of baseball. Its so that "players and teams can play eachother when they normally wouldnt". Although they are normally playing them, because they are playing them. It's also there to alter the purpose of the World Series.[/u]

I'll admit the Woods versus Clemens matchup last season was pretty good.

I think "interleague play" is overrated.

So many pitchers and hitters flip flop from league to league, its just a way for MLB to hype up games for ratings.

The only thing that I like about it is that it lets fans see players that they normally wouldn't. That said, for the price that it costs to take the family to the ballpark, they could just buy the season of MLB Extra Innings on cable or dish and see any player every day. :-?

It's my favourite time of the regular season.

It should go for 2 months and not 2 weeks.

The only thing I like about interleague is the rivalries between AL and NL teams with close proximity. Oakland VS SanFrancisco, Cubs VS WhiteSox, Mets VS Yankees, a stretch Marlins VS DevilRays...snicker :-B , Indians VS Reds, and a few others are great for the fans.

From a scheduleing perspective, I think it hurts the competetive balance of the season overall, but not too big a price to pay.

:-? I might have to get to that game. I havn't been to one in almost 2 years after going about 30 times a year before that. Time to get back in the swing of things :-D

Well, Ryan Madson threw some nice BP. ;-)

Waechter is actually a decent pitcher for us. Brazelton was the #2 overall pick a few years ago and pitched well in relief of Waechter.
