MLB Needs a Few Rule Changes

4 posts in this topic

For starters, the fact if the White Sux win tomorrow, they will host the Twins on tuesday. The Twins have the better head to head record, and the game should be here, it should be up to their records head to head, not a coin flip.

And another one I am not too crazy about- the WS home field advantage goes to the League winners of the All-Star game. What a joke. What if, and only an example here- a Wild Card team, say from the AL goes to the World Series. They have posted a record like 86-76. The AL has won the All-Star game. So the AL team with a record barely over 500 gets homefield over an NL team with say a 100-62 record. The homefield in the WS should go to the team with the better record. If they are tied, then homefield should be based on each teams interleague records. I can almost gurantee alot of the braindead rules in the MLs are the brainchilds of Bud Selig, a person that should have never been put into the commissioners office to begin with since he owned a team, giving him a huge prejuidice.

Sorry, had to vent, esp if the Twins have to go to Chicago, I am just not happy about that situation at all

The allstar game means something then, right?

Detroit will laydown for the sox. (Detroit just fired pitching coach and bullpen). Guys just want the offseason to start.

I agree that the game should be played in Minnesota since we won the season series.

I disagree on both counts.... grin

It's just common sense you have to have time to Schedule these playoff games you can't wait until the last game of season and then just decide to a play a game the next day with 40,000 people attending along with the several hundred employee's and City workers needed to pull this off. It's not a little league game folks! I do wish the coin flip was recorded live with witness's, I do not believe Boston won all 3 of their coin flips.

Good rule with not many other options available.

Having the All Star Game determine the home feild in the World Series is one of the best things baseball has ever done they turned a meaningless game into something that matters... I can't think of a better way to determine the home Field then to have the best players from each league determine it on the feild... Great Rule

I certainly wouldn't want a weaker team from the National League with a few more wins then a much better team from the American League to have Home Field because they play in a weaker Division and league. That makes no sense to me!

I'm glad they didn't use the all star game results to determine home field advantage in 1987, but now that they use it, it seems to give the all star game a little more meaning.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
