Ursa wrote:Again with the unfairness. I flat out do not get this - how is playing a three game series any more "unfair" than NY and Boston playing the weak Tampa Bay 18 times each??? Is the AL East "fair" when it is a stone cold guarantee that one of those two teams will win it 95% of the time, no question?

Don't tell me that N.L. teams don't have at least one really good bat on the bench that each manager wishes could be in the lineup everyday-so playing in an A.L. park shouldn't hurt an N.L. team. But, playing in an N.L. park does hurt an A.L. team. Firstly, A.L. pitchers now have to bat-a skill they don't work on as much as N.L. pitchers do, if at all. Secondly, the A.L. team now has to take a starting bat out of the lineup. In some cases, this is an A.L. team's best or near best bat. For example: If Cleveland plays in an N.L. park, Travis Hafner has to ride the pine or he has to play 1st base. Either way, Cleveland loses because either Hafner sits or he brings his 2nd rate glove to the field. There are many other examples like this. True interleague play takes place in the world series.
