First, don't get me wrong....the World Series has been amazing. As exciting as you can ever hope to see. The games have been entertaining and absolutely crazy as far as competition goes. That being said, "baseball people" don't typically look at 13-12 games as "great baseball". And I'm one. Give me a 3-hitter that ends up 1-0 won on a suicide squeeze any time. And somewhere around 3 hours instead of 5 hours +
I really think that the 162 game season is to blame. Both teams are just comp;etely out of gas when it comes to pitching....starters and relievers both. 162 games, plus 20 in the post season is going to do that...there's nothing that can be done about it.
Do you think that the post season/World Series would be better if they cut the regular season back to say 140 games?? That would essentially take 4 starts away from each starter....and give them that much more to have available come late October (or early November)
