The whole anti-interleague thing is something I forgot about. Baseball is the worst sport at changing. Well glad they're doing what they're doing next year.

re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

I liked the concept of two distinct leagues that only met in the All-Star game and World Series. Unfortunately Bud Selig has made it a point to remove all distinction from the leagues.

I don't mind the extra wild-card(really two teams fighting for one playoff spot). I hate that the Astros have to move to the AL and even worse interleague everyday.

Interleague never bugged me before until last year. One thing I noticed because of IL as a Mets fan is that some of the NL teams seem as foreign as AL teams. It seems like I'm more familiar with the Mets playing at Yankee Stadium than playing against the Cubs at Wrigley.

Outside the rivalry games (Mets-Yankees, Cub-Sox, Dodgers-A's) interleague is unnecessary and random as fuck. Not to mention it messes up strength of schedule. Even when one division faces another there's usually teams left off the schedule.

If they were going to make it interesting they could at least make the Red Sox play the Mets on the road. Instead they have to play the Orioles who they already played in 09 and 10. I'm surprised MLB didn't do this since Mets/Red Sox would've been a guaranteed sellout like Mets/Yankees.

At this point they might as well break down all the walls and standardize the rules between the two leagues.

smh Tigers bullpen blows another one. This time it wasn't even Valverde. ugh.

And it'd be nice if these bats could get some hits with RISP. 37 hits and only 12 runs in last 4 games. Weak.

Interesting. Chris Sale is entering the game in the 8th inning here, not the 9th.

They should just put Sale back in the rotation with the struggles of Cy Humber.

Robin was trolling all the fantasy teams that has him. What a guy.

Lou and the Cubs almost ruined Samardzija flipping him back and forth and I hope to God the Sox don't do that with Sale. There's no reason to have him as the closer. Addison Reed could handle that role more than adequately for the next 10 years.
