How Not to "Save" Baseball

I love the new Business Insider sports page, but today it's got just a joke of an article, called "How To Save Baseball In 8 Easy Steps."

All eight of them are bad ideas, and there's a ninth bad one too- baseball doesn't need saving. Did you see the game last night? It was pretty great.

Relegation in baseball? It works in England because it's been in place for decades and decades. Nobody under the age of 70 has nostalgia for no playoffs. Interleague play has been a big success. And the "World Series must be played in 10 days or less?" There's seven games and two off-days- it IS always played in ten days or less.

Where are you Fire Joe Morgan?
