  2. With the following format I presume: 1st round: Two-game, total-points. Re-seed Quarterfinals: Best of 3. Re-seed Semifinals: Best of 5. NBA Finals: Best of 7.
  3. NBA is considering a restructuring of the regular season and playoffs. For those who are click-shy: -A shorter regular season of at least 78 games. -An in-season tournament modeled on the FA Cup. -An expanded playoffs, where 7th-10th seeds play-in to the playoffs. -Re-seeding to be introduced for the semifinals. The NBA hopes to include some, perhaps all, recommendations to be implemented in 2021-22.

  5. In light of the leaking of the list of the 42 teams targeted for elimination from Minor League Baseball, I have worked out a potential alignment of MiLB's New World Order. Some of it is simple, some very complex: AAA International League Buffalo, Lehigh Valley, Rochester, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Syracuse, Worcester Charlotte, Durham, Gwinnett, Norfolk Columbus, Indianapolis, Louisville. Memphis, Nashville, Toledo Iowa, Omaha, St. Paul, Wichita Pacific Coast League Albuquerque, El Paso, Oklahoma City, Round Rock, San Antonio Las Vegas, Reno, Sacramento, Salt Lake, Tacoma AA Eastern League Akron, Altoona, Bowie, Brooklyn, Dayton, Harrisburg, Hartford, New Hampshire, Portland, Reading, Trenton, West Michigan Southern League Arkansas, Biloxi, Birmingham, Jacksonville, Mississippi, Montgomery, Pensacola, Richmond, Rocket City, Tennessee Texas League Amarillo, Corpus Christi, Frisco, Midland, NW Arkansas, Springfield MO, Sugarland, Tulsa High-A California League Fresno, Lake Elsinore, Modesto, Rancho Cucamonga, San Bernardino, San Jose, Stockton, Visalia Carolina League Aberdeen, Asheville, Carolina, Down East, Fayetteville, Fredericksburg, Greensboro, Hickory, Kannapolis, Lynchburg, Salem, Winston-Salem Florida State League Bradenton, Charlotte, Clearwater, Dunedin, Fort Myers, Jupiter, Lakeland, Palm Beach, St. Lucie. Tampa Low-A Midwest League Beloit or Quad Cities, Bowling Green, Cedar Rapids, Fort Wayne, Great Lakes, Kane County, Lansing, Peoria, South Bend, Wiscnsin New York-Penn League(For lack of better options) Delmarva, Hudson Valley, Lake County, Lakewood, Staten Island, Tri-City(NY), West Virginia Black Bears, Wilmington Northwest League Boise, Eugene, Everett, Hillsboro, Spokane, Vancouver South Atlantic League Augusta, Charleston(SC), Columbia, Greenville, Myrtle Beach, Rome Any suggestions, thoughts, and/or blind rage at my realignment?
  6. It looks like Quad Citites in on the list only because Beloit might actually get their act together. All this and more in the latest from Ballpark Digest: https://ballparkdigest.com/2019/11/18/more-details-emerge-on-mlbs-assault-on-hometown-baseball/
  7. The problem is, if it does go into effect, many of the said markets will just give up on competitive baseball completely.
  8. From the New York Times, the 42 teams facing extinction(I'll list them here for those who get paywalled): Auburn Doubledays Batavia Muckdogs Billings Mustangs Binghamton Rumble Ponies Bluefield Blue Jays Bristol Pirates Burlington Bees Burlington Royals Chattanooga Lookouts Clinton LumberKings Connecticut Tigers Danville Braves Daytona Tortugas Elizabthton Twins Erie SeaWolves Florida Fire Frogs Frederick Keys Grand Junction Rockies Great Falls Voyagers Greeneville Reds Hagerstown Suns Idaho Falls Chukars Jackson Generals Johnson City Cardinals Kingsport Mets Lancaster Jethawks Lexington Legends Lowell Spinners Mahoning Valley Scrappers Missoula PaddleHeads Ogden Raptors Orem Owlz Princeton Rays Quad Cities River Bandits Rocky Mountain Vibes Salem-Keizer Volcanoes State College Spikes Staten Island Yankees Tri-City Dust Devils Vermont Lake Monsters West Virginia Power Williamsport Crosscutters Only the Cubs and Rangers will have their full set of affiliates survive the contraction.

  15. And there I much rejoicing...YAAAAAAYYYYYY!!!!!!
  16. Not if MLB convinces the NCAA to push back the CWS later. It would mortally wound, if not kill the collegiate summer leagues.
  17. All this buildup for a team that could get fortyseconded to fulfill MLB's bloodlust to move MILB to the exurbs of MLB cities? Yeah, right.
  18. Week 8: Vikings 38, Redskins 13 Seahawks 31, Falcons 14 Colts 26, Broncos 18 Titans 27, Buccaneers 23 Saints 33, Cardinals 27 Rams 31, Bengals 14 Bills 30, Eagles Bears 27, Chargers 16 Lions 24, Giants 21 Jaguars 27, Jets 7 49ers 34, Panthers 23 Texans 30, Raiders 20 Patriots 41, Browns 6 Packers 23, Chiefs 22 Steelers 35, Dolphins 13
  19. Someone on another forum did a quick calculation on who would be cut in a contraction of the minor leagues: -- Staten Island (NYY) and Brooklyn (NYM) would likely be the two NYPL teams moving up to the AA Eastern League -- Aberdeen (BAL) would likely be the NYPL team moving to the high-A Carolina League -- If you sort all 160 current affected teams, the top 120 (the projected cutoff point) would all have a minimum of 5000 seats at their stadiums. The two independent teams (St. Paul and Sugar Land) have capacities of 7000-7500 -- All 10 teams in the Appalachian League are in the danger zone, having capacities of 4000 or less, but 7 of those 10 teams are owned by their MLB affiliates -- The other Rookie-Adv level league, the Pioneer League, currently has 5 out of 8 teams in the safety zone (including Colorado-owned Grand Junction), but 2 of those 5 would be bumped out by the two independents -- High-A Carolina League would have 3 teams in trouble (Down East (TEX owned), Fayetteville (HOU owned), Lynchburg) -- High-A Florida State League would have 1 team in trouble (Daytona) -- High-A California League would have 3 teams in trouble (Modesto (SEA owned), San Jose (SF owned), Visalia) -- Low-A South Atlantic League would have 3 teams in trouble (Asheville, Hagerstown, Kannapolis) -- Low-A Midwest League would have 3 teams in trouble (Beloit, Bowling Green, Burlington)
  20. The St. Paul Saints' reaction to all this? It's news to us. https://twitter.com/AA_Baseball/status/1185721261042724872
  21. I actually saw a report on ballparkdigest.com saying that a PCL team is being targeted for a move to St. Paul and that some short season clubs, like the whole Northwest League may become full season operations.
  22. MLB has proposed eliminating 42 MiLB clubs from affiliated baseball(basically by nuking the short season leagues) and is seeking to bring in two independent league teams to help get to 120. Those being So...with that in mind, what 42 clubs would you eliminate? This of course assumes this idea passes through without modifications.
  23. So...what 42 clubs would you eliminate? This of course assumes this idea passes through without modifications. I'm gonna post this again in the realignment thread, so answer the question there, not here.
