Everyone who is not a fan of the San Fransisco Giants and Texas Rangers is already throwing logs on the stove looking ahead to next season. The cool autumn air is already full of rumors and news about the 2011 season. Just this morning comes the news that the Commissioner is contemplating further screwing up baseball by floating a trial balloon of sending even more teams to the playoffs. That would be wrong. It is definitely a breath of fresh air to read in that story, though, how Nolan Ryan has come out in favor of elimination of the DH in the AL! The Commish, however, doesn't seem to be having any of that talk. And the Yankees have re-upped their skipper for the next three years.
