    Because of the amount of games played and the very rare off days between them they want to avoid playing a shortened game on another day so they just play the five innings, then if the weather stops it, they wait as long as they can and then just call it.

    I love baseball.
    Even when I was very young I never thought a bb game was too long.
    The first time my dad took me to a double header I didn’t know it was a double header and when he told me they had another game coming right away I was thrilled.

    Malcolm I really don’t have any answer for you on that because
    It’s just the way the game is set up.

    I’ll be watching the Braves and Nats on Facebook live today.

    Oakland has moved into 2nd place!

    I’m pulling for Arizona as well.

    The Mariners completed a 4-game sweep of the Astros today, and in Houston no less. W00T! The Astros have been such a thorn in my side since they came to the AL West.

    Amazing!

    There are some great baseball stories going for sure!

    Looking forward to DeGrom pitching tonight!
    He has been amazing this season even if he doesn’t have a ton of wins.
    Hoping somehow he can continue to pitch well enough to be considered for the nl Cy Young. He’s having an unbelievable year!!

    Some great races going on. Go Oakland!

    I’m cheering for DeGrom too! Hope he pitched well on Thursday!

    I'm a Yankees fan and with the 2nd best record in baseball, we will have to play the wildcard game.

    Dems the breaks.

    Take a look at the NL west standings in 1993 and ask the Giants fans how they felt.

    I can tell you how the team with 104 felt -- for about a week.

    I really despise the whole idea some have floated of best 3 Div Winner and 2 WC then seed by record -- if you do that, just go to a 15 team league and top 4 (or 5) go forward. Or better yet 4 4 team divisions in each league with an unbalanced schedule and only Div Winners get to the playoffs.

    Let's go back to just two divisions per league.

    And if you give me a hard time about that, I'll cut it back to just two leagues! :laugh:

    It's the one game playoff that sucks. Have it back before with one wildcard team instead of two.

    The one game play-in nonsense is the worst.

    Won't argue with you either way and no wild cards at all -- win your division/league or go home AND no more November World Series
