Best of 5 Series

Best of 5 Series

PostPost #1 by DougDE » October 9th, 2010, 4:06 am

I was wondering what everyone's opinion is about the Division Series being best of 5. I personally dont like it. I think baseball is more of a marathon type game and any playoff series should be best of 7. Teams play for 6 months to figure out who gets to go to the postseason and then have a bad 2 games and it's practically over. I assume it's like that since the end of the World Series already flurts with Nov. but I dont think thats a good enough reason to sell teams short. I'd like to see a 154 game regular season but I know that isn't happening so my solution would be to schedule 3 or 4 double headers during the season. Like have a double header during each of the holiday weekends and that would free up the 3 days needed to add the 2 games to the Div Series.

I like the 5 game series for the ALDS. I don't want to see snow during my baseball games, thank you. Also, you don't want to exhaust teams too much.
Baltimore! BUCK YEAH! Coming into save the MOTHER BUCKING day yeah!
