MLB to tighten playoff schedule

New, 5 comments

Remember all the talk about all the amount of days off in between playoff games?

Bud Selig announced today that he will work to cut down on the amount of days off in between games:

Commissioner Bud Selig said Wednesday he's working on tightening up the 2010 playoff schedule so there will be fewer gaps between games.

Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia criticized the current format after the Yankees and Angels played only eight times in 20 days going into Game 6 of the AL championship series.

"We're going to change it," Selig said. "I don't disagree with Mike Scioscia. I think he was right, so we're going to try and tighten that up."

 

This is an announcement that a lot of players were waiting for. In 2007 and in 2009, there were complaints about the scheduling issues and this move should allow teams to play at a normal pace.
