Report: MLB considering a MORE unbalanced schedule than it already has

23 Comments

Danny Knobler of CBS Sports.com has an interesting and unwelcome report.  According to “a high-ranking official” the 2013 schedule may be more unbalanced than the current unbalanced schedule:

In fact, the official said, teams may well go from playing 18 games a year against each division opponent to playing 19 a year. In that case, teams would play 47 percent of their games against teams within their own division.

Which means that teams in the tough divisions will have an even harder time competing for the wild card with teams from easy divisions.  But hey, look on the bright side: that’s one more Yankees-Red Sox game for ESPN or Fox to broadcast. And we all win when that happens, right?

Alex Bregman shaved his mustache off in the middle of Sunday’s game

Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.

Sometimes you just need to switch things up. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️

Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.

Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
