I often wonder how the schedule-makers determine the number of games the Yankees play against non-AL East teams. I’m sure it’s inherently random, but I’m not crazy about the fact that, for example, the Yankees will have played nine games apiece against each of the teams in the AL West this season while only getting [...]
The Yankees last faced the Reds in a 2008 set at Yankee Stadium, and the last time they were at Cincinnati was in 2003. Quite a bit has changed for the Reds, who spent every season over the last 10 years as a below-.500 team (though for the most part, one that could often rake) [...]
Yesterday, MLB Trade Rumors posted about these statements from Bud Selig,
Commissioner Bud Selig told Chris Russo on SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Radio that he’s confident in the Mets, not considering contraction and open to realignment and expanding the playoffs. Here are the details and other highlights:
The Mets asked for and obtained a [...]
This is a guest post from friend-of-the-blog Joe R., who can be found at @JoeRo23 on Twitter. It is a long post, but I encourage you to read it in its entirety, as Joe raises a very interesting hypothetical that should make for some fun discussion.

SI’s Tom Verducci recently proposed some radical changes designed to improve Major League Baseball. His suggestions stem from the NFL’s emergence as the most popular American sport.

Oh boy! The Yanks get to face the Toronto Annoyings of Annoyingville during the last official weekend of summer™ (though it obviously goes through September 21st, and oftentimes the weather stays pleasant even into October, many still consider Labor Day weekend the end of summer. Not me, though.) for [...]
Hooray for Interleague Play being over! I realize there are certain aspects of Interleague that are enjoyable to fans, but unless they revamp the schedule so that every team in baseball plays every other team there’s always going to be a certain level of imbalance/unfairness to the proceedings. [...]
For what it’s worth, I’ve never been much of a fan of Interleague Play, let alone six absurdly hyped-up regular season games against a severely mismanaged crosstown National League baseball club that solely exist to help the Daily News and the Post sell newspapers.
David Schoenfield of ESPN wrote the first article I read on realignment in February. He proposed changing the teams in the divisions each season to improve competitiveness. He also blamed the Yankees for baseball’s perceived lack of parity. I thought he was an idiot then and still do now.
To my shock, Schoenfield’s [...]
