    What a joke.
    Fairies will not budge on doing less than three weeks of Spring Training; even two and a half weeks is not enough.
    Ten-team playoffs for a money grab.

    I thought you were in favor of unions. This is what you get.

    Three weeks of spring training is really silly at this point. Players should be doing their exercise / training independently and be staying ready.

    And frankly, these players should be sucking it up. There should be a couple double headers every week to get that season up to 100 games.

    I don't give a sh** about unions when they're greedy.

    I agree.

    Most of the players are being extremely greedy here. Totally exploiting the situation the world is facing.

    I’d be pissed at that if the MLB wasn’t so corrupt either. They deserve each other.

    I'd say there's likely gonna be no season.
    MLBPA think they should be paid contrary to market forces.
    them. Take next year off too for all I care.

    They should just keep the 162 game season and have triple headers and play thru any rain if necessary.

    Give more pitchers that would normally be on the bullpen the opportunity to earn long term careers.

    no

    They'd be playing well into the wee hours of the morning if that was the case. Double header games when they do happen already take up a full day as it is.

    fine, they can do double headers and play until Christmas. Snow baseball sounds like fun.

    Baseball is fine but you cant have too much of it.

    1 game is already at least 3 hours long. I have always said 162 is already too many. What they should do is fix their playoff format. The best of 1 (Wild card) and 5 is just pathetic. Should be at the bare mininum best of 5 (For wild card to give them a proper chance) and the rest best of 7.

    why not just make it 1-8 like basketball except maybe the first two rounds as best of 5

    That's pretty close to what they'd have done in the olden days even when it was train travel.

    I don't give a f*ck about the players at this point.

    They want the 162 for all that revenue. If it ever gets shaved down, it probably doesn't go below 158-160.

    The playoffs could be expanded still yet if spring training was shrunk from four weeks to two weeks. But the players are snowflakes and think they have to start the season in ultra peak condition cos they don't work out enough in the off-season apparently.

    There's more money for all parties with compe ive playoff baseball, so one would think it could be done. As it is, I really think it's stupid that these wild card teams that are often having great seasons are then playing one-game elimination play-in games and the fans are often screwed out of seeing their team play in the playoffs in person. That's a real head shaker to me. It's a huge tease. And I think it was ins uted this way because certain factions (Yankees) were mad that wild cards were making it to the World Series ahead of division winners at pretty high rates.

    Why do the need to play "spring training?"

    Just play a weekend of exhibition games to warm up and get to playing. They're essentially wasting a month doing spring training.

    Does it really matter if it's all at one neutral site stadium with no fans?

    Yeah that's not how the body works, these guys need to get back to game shape or you'll be having blown hammies, and ed up arms for next year. The fat DH's are fine though

    Cos the players were too busy to be running on a treadmill? GTFO.
