Hello and welcome, everybody.
I am your host, Christian, also known as Christian G 109 a Follow me on Twitter.
Follow me on SportsCastr with that used named Christian G 1098 I'd really appreciate if you do that.
And speaking of that, I was going to post on Twitter that I am live, so make sure to follow me on Twitter and on SportsCastr.
So you know, every time that I am live, but really appreciate if you would do that.
And today we will be talking about the MLB.
Excuse me? The animal peace plan to bring to be the first professional sport back and Teoh bringing baseball back.
Kind of looks weird with nothing behind here, but it will be back to normal soon.
And, um, there's five main parts, Um, to this.
Ah, to this, I guess Plan, you can call it, and I'm gonna forget one of them.
But right now it's gonna list the ones that that I know.
And I'm pretty sure I have old Beiber now, but I might forget 1 82 Game season 30 man roster Universal D H Expanded Player 14 team playoffs expanded.
And the last one is, uh, divisions and travel and team opponents.
So I'm gonna be going through all five of those topics and seeing whether it be good for baseball, bad for baseball, seeing kind of what it would be like.
And, um, you know how things could change just from normal.
And, you know, things might be different because of those, um, of those five things and why they're necessary for baseball to do so.
We will start off obviously with the 82 game season.
I mean, that's the biggest part of this.
I think this can be either really good or really bad for baseball just because on it becomes a sprint and not a sprint.
But I mean baseballs and marathon, no doubt about that 162 game season.
I mean, that's crazy.
That's playing like every other day all year long, but, um yeah, that it's just a marathon.
But to move it down to 82 games, that be very exciting because any team has a chance and, you know, you could just get hot at the right time and seek your way into the playoffs that that part's very exciting to me because it's not, you know, your typical Dodgers, Yankees, Astros, the same teams every single year.
I mean, we like it's the same teams at the top, same teams, making it every year.
And it's gonna be nice to see, you know, maybe a team just surprises somebody, maybe a team.
That's kind of like a friend.
But maybe, you know, um, the Mets, the Phillies teams like those who are prior around, you know, 85 win teams can get hot at the right time and find their way into the playoffs.
Maybe they could make some noise there.
I think it could be very good for the MLB, but it comes to be very bad, because, I mean, it's just like it's just not to say it's not a regular MLB seasons not gonna be a regular and will be season.
But then it doesn't give a chick a team a chance that they have a slow start to come back.
But it's going to be exciting because every game means two times over its half the games of the normal seasons.
That's two times more.
Every game means two times more than it did before, and that's pretty exciting, at least to make.
And I mean, I think it could be good.
It could be bad.
I don't know if it work out, but, you know, just a team gets hot.
And who knows, maybe they find their way into the playoffs.
That could be very exciting.
Um, this is an 82 game season. They have to.
They have to obviously have Teoh, you know, shortened down the season because obviously we missed the first.
It would start July 4th weekend.
So let's say it starts July 7th 8th you're losing March and April.
Syria was in the first month of season.
It was in May and June's.
That's three months of season.
You have three months left, so if you lose half the season, then you lose half the game, so it's gonna work out.
It's not gonna be like every games, doubleheader, stuff like that.
I mean, there's gonna have half of the games, so I mean, they have to do it, that they don't have a choice but to, you know, short down the game, they can't have a 162 game season.
It's not gonna happen it, and it just can't happen.
So now, to the next thing, the Universal D. H.
And, um, I don't I don't like this at all.
I think I just like the strategy of a National League baseball game, an American League game.
You just set your lineup and you don't think about anything after that.
The National League, you got the double switches you got.
You know, pensioners, pinch runners.
You know, guys out of the bullpen and their strategy, there it to strategy and thought.
And it's not just like your brainless going it.
It's not like once the game starts, you have no decisions to make.
Like in the American League.
All the decisions are before the game, but internationally gotta make decisions in the heat of the moment.
You know, taking the poles of the game.
It's just I don't like the universal D H.
I like the way it is now.
I like the strategy of the National League baseball game because you actually have to think it's not just it's not just all the thinking goes in before the game, then once you're in the game, just your own cruise control.
I mean, I just don't like that, but and I don't really get the point of it.
How does a D h help like, out of the DHL get the season started faster? I just I don't get it.
Um, but the one thing I could see it kind of happening because I could see it happening because there's gonna be a lot of interleague play, and it's just gonna be a lot less complicated.
H. Because it's gonna be a lot more.
The teams played against will be a lot more like regions.
There's gonna be prying east of western north south region.
I mean, so there's gonna be a lot of interleague play between those two, and it just be a lot easier if they, um if they just throw in that d h being the nationally.
Thank you for the tip.
I really appreciate it.
So I mean, I don't like it, but I can kind of see why, but I don't think it za must.
I don't think it's something they have to dio They have to shorten the season.
They don't have to, um, make a universal d h.
I don't really get that part But, you know, it's not a huge deal.
Um, and now the next thing.
So there's usually the 25 man roster going into the MLB.
I think, Um, a rule passed this off season before all this crazy stuff happened.
That that B 26 man roster and now the proposal is 30 and I really like this idea.
I think it makes a lot of sense because look, these guys, their their game, their season, it's all gonna be condensed just into one.
It's all like it's not like it's over six months, unusual baseballs, and it's gonna be playing pretty much every single day.
Three straight months, plus playoffs.
And these guys are not condition they haven't been been able to work out in the offseason.
So of course, there's a lot higher chance of injury because they didn't have the kind of preparation and all this kind of came out of nowhere.
So it's like they don't have the same preparation which can lead to injuries and those kind of problems.
So I like the 30 man roster should give more guys day off.
More guys breaks and who knows? Maybe, you know, a five man route.
And one, maybe one of these rules sticks like maybe you add the 30 man roster and it sticks in the for years to come.
75 Man rotation T They're doing six man rotations.
I mean, it's it is.
It's complicated, but I mean, the 30 man roster opens up a lot of options for teams and the universal D H.
I mean, it's it's very interesting, but 30 man rushes makes sense to try to prevent injury.
And now to the last two, Um, we'll do opponents.
So teams, whether National Leaguer, American League, they're gonna play their division and teams in their region, I guess you could call it.
So I'm just gonna take the Philadelphia Phillies as an example.
There are in the National League East, so they'd be playing the Braves, Mets, nationals and Marlins a lot.
They'd be playing those teams a lot.
And then in the teams in their region, um, like the Northeast, that kind of east area of the country, you probably probably looking at the pirates who are also in Pennsylvania, the Yankees, who are really right up the road just a few hours.
Um, I think the ****hest that it could go with the travel is probably Cincinnati or, um, Boston.
So I think those are teams like the Yankees Red Sox.
Um uh, Reds, Pirates.
I'm trying to think of some other teams.
Um, e I don't know.
I don't I don't have I think those are the kind of teams that you know.
It would be facing a lot.
So it's a lot of teams in your region, a lot of teams that are near you, so they tryto crack down the travel.
It's not like you're traveling, you know, four hours from east coast of West Coast to play three games and just go right back.
I mean, tryingto not have there be as much travel because, you know, you don't want to spread everything and all that kind of stuff, so I mean, it's gonna be a lot of teams in the division, and a lot of teams in your regions will be kind.
A lot of east playing east north, playing Northwest, playing less sort south, playing south.
It's gonna be very interesting to see you know how the schedules are gonna look because there's teams that are not even going to be in the same.
There's gonna be a teams in the National League and American League that are now playing each other 10 times that in applying each other. Three.
Siri's a year, one before they have to Siri's every four years.
Um, so it's gonna be instance.
See how the scheduling gives and now my favorite part of this, along with the 82 games, the 14 team playoffs.
I think they added this because teams that are good and that probably are locks to make the playoffs.
If they get off to a slow start, they still the chance.
And I like the 14 team playoff just in general because it gives more teams a chance.
Let's more teams in, and it's not like teams that are winning 90 games here, but it just stuck in a good division are or a stacked league missed.
So I mean, I, like on the expanded plows, gives more teams a chance, and I think this year it's a good year to try it out because what if you know they do that they do the expanded plasma turn out to be awesome.
They could just implement that into the game for years to come.
So I think these ideas Ah, lot of there because the virus, obviously, but a lot of one works kind of tests to see like this is kind of like a a test season.
Just to see if these ideas bill, well, maybe they stick in the future.
Um, so this is a very big season for the MLB, and they definitely just want to get it going.
So it's gonna be intense.
See if any of these rules stick, um, to see if it's not only just a one year thing, and if they they become part of Major league baseball forever, who knows? Maybe we only have 100 game season for years to come.
It's just a very odd situation.
But it could change the game forever.
That's gonna be very intimate again.
The five points, 82 game season, 30 man roster.
Only playing teams in your region, um, blanket one only valentines. No reason.
30 man roster playoff, 82 game season and universal D.
So how that any how the show the MLB handles the season will be very interesting? I just hope the players approve us and that we have a season.
Guys, thank you so much for watching a really appreciate what? You guys all have a great night tonight.
Make sure you stay safe, Peace out.
