An 154 MLB Game Schedule Makes A lot Of Sense – Even For Separating The Record Books

Major League Baseball used to run on a 154 game schedule before 1961  In that year, the American League added two new franchises in expansion, with the Caliornia Angels and the Washington Senators.  The National League played one more season with the 154 games mark before they also converted to the new 162 game season.

The idea has lots of merit at its starting point, but a lot of the big market clubs like New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, LA Dodgers, Philadelphia Philies, Chicago Cubs, St. Louis Cardinals and LA Angels would hate voting for this for sure, as it would cut into revenue’s based largely on attendance alone, but for the other clubs I could see them not dropping by much in attendance at all aggregate for the whole lump sum of a year.

I think it would only work if they increased the Post Season to a bet of 7 LDS Round once the Wild Card Winners were determined. Read the rest of this entry
