The Dodgers scored 13 runs in two innings.....and proceeded to allow 11 runs in the following two.  Jesus Christ.

In AZ, it's known as the battle of Goodyear.

I watch the Braves at times, and turned it off last night in the 7th.  They looked hapless, can't hit.  Can't pitch much either.

Then I see they came back and won in extra.

I don't care for the new rules on extras.

I like the 7 inning double headers.  But they need to be true doubleheaders, with one ticket being good for admission to both.

Well, that would benefit the customer and make them happy at the expense of profits....

During limited capacity, maybe.  Once those restrictions are removed, I'm not as sure.  Perhaps for good teams, late on the year, when there are sellouts.  But otherwise, when Their are always tickets available at the gate, getting to see two 7 inning games, for the price of one, may be a selling point.  And then, once you are in, what are you going to do during that 30 minute break?  Hit the shops and concessions

Whichever way puts an extra dollar in owners' pockets, that's the one that will occur.

The biggest beneficiary is the players.  For the owners the biggest benefit is a carrot in the next set of negotiations. You guys want to keep this, what are you willing to give up?

The only losers are the fans, without a seat at the table

Between that and a certain work stoppage next spring, fans are certainly getting the wrong end of the stick.

I'm glad you said it.  If I said it, it'd be wrong.

May be an image of text that says 'Albert Pujols has been in the league for so long that he played in a playoff series against the Phillies. PUJOLS 5 HOWARD 6'

9 years?  BFD.    Should be, Pujols has been in the Show since the Mariners were in the postseason.
