Some rule changes that the players want...

I'll use their blog version of The Athletic story since it pulls the details from behind the paywall

If they get rid of the DH, they should get rid of the AL and NL.

Create 3 Divisions of 10 teams.

12 teams make the playoffs.

Top 4 team gets a bye, Division winners are only guaranteed a playoff spot.

the other 8 play a 1 game playoff, and then you carry on with 7 game series.


Also, Teams should have to carry the same roster between each series in the playoffs.

Get rid of the DH. National League baseball hasn't been played in years. Small ball is dead and the strategy in the NL is negligible.
YogiStewart is human garbage.

I'll take over this thread to add this:

Real changes almost agreed to between MLB and the PA for 2020:

-Rosters will expand to 26
-September callups will be limited to a roster limit of 28.

Great start, get me a universal DH and one trade deadline and I’ll be happy.
