    Pass on the Boras idea. Weather turns nasty and cold during those months.

    If Boras is for it, then it's a stupid idea and I hate it and he should shut up

    Wouldn’t it just be smart to play 81 games starting in July. Cut out interleague play and make non division games some played at home and others played away?

    Or you could just cut to everyone’s 81st game and play it out as it was supposed to. But they may cause horribly uneven schedule strength.

    Honestly, the guy takes a lot of shit but I have no doubt that his love of/for baseball is as sincere as Sir Thomas More.

    It was called rounders but he was always there behind the plate yelling at the French and spitting tobacco all over the meadow.

    You got further than me. But perhaps I despise Boras more than you.

    Wonder if their is something in contracts about agents getting less of a cut from a players salary when they can’t play because of something out of the players or the owners control.

    Fuck baseball in December. The only thing baseball is good for is filling the airways until college football starts, the month or so of overlap is when most CFB teams are playing their patsies anyway.

    And if they wanted to try to get in around 100...they could do doubleheaders like once or twice a week or something...basically what you said.

    They need to just realize 162 games isnt realistic. Yes you will lose money but kinda have to accept the situation we are living in. Baseball already gets owned by the NFL when people are watching two 1-5 teams play on MNF over a playoff baseball game. No need to have it further compete with the NFL season and have players get less rest for the following year.
