No one said that. What was said deals with the uniqueness of home fields. ;-)
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

We have a winner. ;-D

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.

Anything Boras thinks off is by definition a bad idea for baseball fans since all his ideas revolve around maximizing profits by fleecing everyone he can. %-6
