...but the flip side is how games would have been won if the pitcher was not taken out to early?

there might be some games that could have been won by leaving in a hot pitcher but the numbers don't lie and they show that pitchers get hit more often the 3rd time through the lineup and the numbers also show that you will win more regular season games by bringing in relief pitchers earlier.

No way to know what would have happened.

Less so if the batters figured out your signs :)

He's right. MLB should get it in the next CBA to define how players found to have cheated should be deciplined.

Next step is just to start having teams voted off the island.

This is wild

https://nypost.com/2020/02/10/mlb-plotting-playoff-expansion-with-reality-tv-twist/amp/#click=https://t.co/RDTj5m8cBd

Maybe I am in the minority, but I for one like the idea. I've seen it bandied about by hockey, and it's already been implemented in a European Hockey League.

Why I like it:
- The Playoff Draft Show + The Intrigue of who they pick - does the top seed always pick the worst seed, or do they go for the better matchup? Is the better matchup the one team you're more likely to beat, or the one that screws over your biggest rival?
- It makes more buyers at the trade deadline

Why I don't think it will work:
- It will add a week to the season, which means that either the MLBPA or the owners will have to make schedule concessions.

how will it add a week to the season
the 3 game series will be right after the season ends and then one day off and the next series will start
the same amount of time that the tie breaker and wild card game are now
