I thought they were keeping the same number of interleague games, only spread out through the season? At least they are balancing the schedule for interleague play, it seems.

This honestly fixes interleague play to make more sense in my opinion.

I think the single play-off is stupid, but I like full-season interleague play.
A mixed bag from Selig? I'll take it instead of a full shitsack.

Bobby Valentine and Omar Minaya in Boston would be beyond hilarious.

Seriously, Bobby Valentine is the kind of manager who would tell Dustin Pedroia to bunt Jacoby Ellsbury over to second when down by a run in the top of the 9th, then bench him after he botches it.

He wouldn't bench Pedroia because "he plays the game the right way", which is a good conceptual category in Valentineland.

He would probably bat Crawford's 0.320 OBP first, though.

I don't think he gets hired, he really is the anti-Tito and not really in the Sox m.o., from my outsider impressions.

I fucking love bobby valentine.

He took some mediocre met teams to the playoffs and to the world series. His act wears thin with professional players eventually, but that's because he actually holds them accountable for their actions, something that clearly had been lacking in boston.

He can be my manager any day.

Not a good offseason for international players' safety. Greg Halman was murdered in the Netherlands last night.

so Verlander is the MVP.Comfortable with that pick?I have a problem with it.

He was the MVP every 5 days....period...not for 6 months.

Should have gone to Jose Bautista.

So you're saying that pitchers shouldn't be eligible?

Pitchers have the Cy young.The MVP should go to a everyday player.

Well for what it's worth in terms of contribution to his role, a pitcher contributes 1/5th to his role on his team whereas a batter contributes 1/9th to his role.

Obviously it gets a little more complex than that with relief pitchers and defense and whatnot, but one can easily argue that a pitcher is more valuable to his team in residual runs than a batter is.

A pitcher with 230+ IPs also faces a little over 900 batters. A leadoff batter will have roughly 700 PAs in a season. So I don't really buy the "not an everyday player argument".

That said, there's no way I'd give Verlander the MVP. Ellsbury and Bautista are much more deserving. In terms of advanced stats, Verlander wasn't even a clear-cut Cy Young winner. Greinke had a much better case a couple of years ago.
