Boy it’s good to be back. I’ve had a tough week with a death in the family and car related issues and I’m ready for some baseball. I wanted to pick your brain though.
If you were commissioner for a day, what would you do to determine home field advantage for the World Series? Would you keep things the same? Would there be any other changes, in return, to the All Star Game?
I have thought about this a good deal over the last few days as I prepared for the podcast yesterday and I think I’ve narrowed down what I’d do. The first step would be to assign home field advantage to the league that had the better record in the regular season for interleague play. I’m not a big fan of assigning the home field advantage to a league on a rotating basis because it seems arbitrary. At the same time, assigning it based on one game, which is what we currently have in place. Assigning it based on a full season seems to make more sense.
I’ll be back later this evening with scouting reports for the series with Houston. Until then, let’s brainstorm.
