They need to leave the game alone. Want to speed games up get rid of replay. It has been a disaster.

I'd do 2 things. I don't mind the leisurely pace so would do nothing there.

I would modify the DH rule one way or another. All in or all out, I really don't care.

Eliminate Interleague play.

Done.

Eliminate inter league play!!! I love it. Before interleague I believe every team played the other teams an equal number of times. It's the purest way to figure out who is the best team.

I agree, I also agree either choose the dh or eliminate it but with interleague being prevalent they should have universal rules

If you eliminate interleague play you would need to have 2 more teams to balance the schedule.

This proposal of mine adds Montreal and Las Vegas....also possibly moves Tampa to Charlotte.

So go to 16 team leagues - 4 -4 Team divisions and no wild card or 2 8 teamers with 2 wild cards.
Either way you end up adding 2 teams to MLB.



West MW Central Northeast
Arizona Diamondbacks Chicago Cubs Atlanta Braves Montreal Expos
Los Angeles Dodgers Colorado Rockies Cincinnati Reds New York Mets
San Diego Padres Milwaukee Brewers Miami Marlins Philadelphia Phillies
San Francisco Giants St Louis Cardinals Pittsburgh Pirates Washington Nationals


West MW Central Northeast
Las Vegas Gunslingers Houston Astros Chicago White Sox Baltimore Orioles
Los Angeles Angels Kansas City Royals Cleveland Indians Boston Red Sox
Oakland A's Minnesota Twins Detroit Tigers New York Yankees
Seattle Mariners Texas Rangers Tampa/Charlotte Rays Toronto Blue Jays



Miami, Colorado and Tampa are the worst fits geographically.

Play each team in your own division 22 times 66 games
Play other teams 8 times 96 Games

162 games

I don't think they're trying to make the game more appealing for old white guys who are already baseball fans you guys.

Tigers trade rumors: Dodgers looking at Justin Wilson for bullpen help

The Dodgers would actually be a good fit for both Wilson and Martinez and Dodgers Digest broke down some potential trades, including one that included both players. The report speculated that outfielder Alex Verdugo and right-handed pitcher Yadier Alvarez would be among the most tantalizing prospects the Tigers would be interested in.

I'm not sure about trading Justin Wilson this summer. They have him cheap yet for another season and without him the bullpen is going to be a complete mess. They can just as easily move him next July, or this winter.

Where to start?
I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Maybe a Metallica concert the night before you need the stadium wasn't the best idea?

Miggy is hitting everything right at people. I mean age is starting to catch up with him but he is putting the ball in play hard most of the time with nothing to show.

As the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline approaches, several Tigers' names have popped up in trade rumors, including Michael Fulmer, Justin Verlander and Daniel Norris.

Add Miguel Cabrera to the growing list.

Former Yankee and FOX analyst Alex Rodriguez made a bold prediction on Saturday's pregame show before the Yankees-Red Sox game that Boston has a shot to acquire Cabrera at the deadline.

"I've been watching (Red Sox general manager) Dave Dombrowski since 1993 when he took over the Miami Marlins GM job, brought the championship to Miami in 1997," Rodriguez said. "I would not be surprised, now this is just me...but I would not be surprised to see Dave Dombrowski pull off a blockbuster and get Miguel Cabrera to the Red Sox."

Anibal's supposed trade value plunging. He needs 5 scoreless now.
