No Planned Future Discussion On Expanded Playoffs, Universal DH 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Mar 4, 2021 1:10 pm

There has been no movement in talks between MLB and the MLB Players Association regarding the implementation of an expanded postseason or the universal designated hitter for the 2021 season, according to a report.

There are no current plans to revisit those talks, which the report characterizes as \"dead issues\" for next season.

Both the expanded playoffs and universal DH is just to drive sales up. It has nothing to do with the game. More teams competing means more money. No pitchers batting means more runs, which means more views and more money.

Let’s get fans back in the stands first. Everything else should be a distant second.
