“Hard Cheddar” – with Steve Cheeseman
Regardless if you’re a casual fan, or die hard Toronto Blue Jay fan, many things come into mind with regard to what should happen next after a terrible 2013 season.
Do Media/Cable giant Roger’s need to spend more money? Should they rebuild from the draft? Should they rent older, experienced players on short term deals?
How about a shift from the American League to the National League?
For the start of the 2013 season, the Houston Astros made the move from the NL to the west division of the AL. This was to equally balance the two leagues to contain 15 teams in each.
In terms of performance, it didn’t help. The 2012 NL Astros finished the season with a 55-107 record, which was good for last in all of Major League Baseball.

I hate the 2 – 3 – 2 format for the ALCS/NLCS plus the World Series Formats.
To me it is complete lunacy that a team with a far better record in the regular season has to play 3 of their first 5 games on the road in the LCS matchups.
Oh.. yeah, if your league wins the ALL – Star Game in July, you also have to go on the road for 3 of the 1st 5 games…Don’t even get me started on that topic. Another time and another rant for that cupcake.
With no ball game yesterday nor today, I talk Red Sox fandom with fellow transplanted New Englander Maura A. Smith.
We discussed why 2013 is already one of our favorite teams, thoughts on the Fox announcers, remembered when being a Red Sox fan wasn’t cool, watching 2004 while living in New York and putting Jimmies on our Ice Cream.
