Some guy at a somewhat larger media outlet -- Rick Morrissey at the Chicago Tribune -- was on the same wavelength.
A wonderful solution would be for baseball to start the season April 15 rather than April 1 and end the regular season Sept. 15 instead of Sept. 30. That's correct: a 130-game schedule."Well, it would be more like 140 games in 154 days.
ShysterBall inveighed against this: "... it seems just as likely that such columns are about lazy writers, looming deadlines, and easy ideas." That's unfair: There is the whole issue of consuming and using less, plus teams might sell more season tickets for 70 games instead of 81.
130-game baseball season? Why not? (Rick Morrissey, Chicago Tribune, Oct. 30)
