Ecstatic that MLB is Removing Day Off Between Games 4 and 5 of the League Championship Series

I’m a baseball junkie if you didn’t know and I am perhaps the only person full of joy over MLB’s decision to shorten to LCS by removing an off-day from the schedule. You can see the story here.

My beloved Halos lost in 6 games to the Yankess and C.C. Sabathia was scheduled to start in game 7 after starting in games 1 and 4. Essentially the extra days off allow a team to use a 3 man rotation, which doesn’t fairly represent the strength of a team over the season with a 5-man rotation. This will now force teams to match their 4th starter against each other and can level it out a bit if a particular team has a deeper rotation. We will never see 5th starters matched with the current system, but this at least mitigates against a team that has 3 str9ong starters and a very mediocre 4 and 5 starter.

    I concur. This is good news. I think that the only reason for this was for TV.

    Now they just have stop having that one division series with a day in between Games 1 and 2.
