Dropping 6 games, but also adding 2 teams results in a net gain, not loss.

adding two teams without reducing games means even greater gains

Of course, you have no idea what my plan is, but you've already judged it!

All 30 teams in the post-season was enough. :)

 

Sorry, though, the sarcasm I laid on was too thick.

I know this was meant to be funny, but I'd 100% back a plan where all 30 teams made a new type of post season......


That would effectively make the regular season exhibition games.
I prefer less postseason inclusion, not more.

From a news post today....

Today looks like a big day in the drive for major league baseball in our town, as the Portland Diamond Project is set to announce that it's secured land rights for a stadium site--rumored to be the Port of Portland's Terminal Two along NW Front Avenue, a mile or so downriver from the Fremont Bridge. Nice setting, underused expanse, but it's a mile or more away from MAX. Maybe the Frog Ferry could have a stop there

I remain hopeful on Buxton and Sano.....but I'd not bet the franchise on them.

JJ: If MLB expands, those 2 cities should be: ________
Keith Law: If MLB expands, they should put part of the expansion fees into building stadiums in the new markets. Portland, OR, and Austin have long been the two best answers to that question, but I’d bet neither electorate would support public funding for a stadium.
