Bryce Harper suggested a college world series playoff format with a losers bracket. I'd like to see a round robin format with six teams per league. You get one more team in the mix and a lot more games in the same number of days. But since the owners and union can't agree on a lunch order I don't see any changes coming.

Under this format, a 72-90 team would have made the playoffs last year.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

Best of three series for all 16 teams, ripe for major upsets. I'm going Stras, Corbin, Sanchez with Scherzer as the long man if one of the starters struggles.

Not getting the 72-90 thing. 8 teams from each league make the playogffs. No worse than a 77-85 team wouldve made the playoffs last year based on a look-see. Probably gonna see 3 teams from NL East get in.

Having more than half the teams make the playoffs will definitely lead to sub .500 teams making it on occasion, but I looked back over the last 10-15 years and that was less common than I expected. Often the bad teams tank so bad that there are 16 or more teams with 80+ wins. 77 wins might have been the least number that I saw that would have qualified.

You never know though, a 77 win team might have had players coming back from injury and added talent at the trade deadline. Meanwhile some teams with monster win totals have their pitching staffs falling apart heading into October.

Really like the Nats' chances in the playoffs, as long as they get in. I dont care if they win the East or not. Stud starting rotation to give anyone fits, and tons of versatility: 5 infielders who can each play 3 or 4 infield positions in case of injuries and covid .

After watching the Yankees series with no fans, does it really matter if you have home field advantage? Hell, with no fans, is there such a thing?!

Last year, the 72-90 Texas Rangers would have been the #8 seed in the American League.

I like the new extra inning rule, it adds more pressure on the relievers and will lead to more wild finishes. Bo Porter had a good point, that often fans tune out in extra innings because they need to get to bed and they have no idea how long the game will last. Now you know that the extra innings will be extra exciting.

I hate the fake crowd noise. The cheers after each play are obviously fake and distracting. The constant humming of ambient crowd noise is maddening. Hopefully the Nats will figure that out, but probably not.
