    I can watch the playoffs and the series, but otherwise, the game and the season are too damn long.

    It used to be 7 innings - I'd be in favor of returning to that. And the 10-month long season is ridiculous!

    Baseball is in serious trouble. They are desperately in need of a salary cap and shared revenue of some kind. The talent pool is such now that it's becoming ridiculously easy to predict the playoff contenders. Last year, I had the top 4 pegged slightly before the All-Star break (as many did, I think). My only goof was in picking the Mariners to beat the Yankees.

    I also think people are tired of seeing the Yankees go to the top 4 (or winning the Series) nearly every damned year.

    • I really think they needed to institute the revenue sharing idea that they commission they created a few years ago recommended. Check out my recent journal entry [perl.org].

      I have started to prefer soccer (or _proper_ football according to vek :-) and have enjoyed rugby immensely since I played it in college (too bad Australia and New Zealand seem to be in a flap over the upcoming World Cup).
