New Hampshire in the Morning

Is the fat lady ready to sing?

M – If ever there was a scenario for a shorter major league baseball season, the Red Sox 2011 campaign should be the reason 162 games is way too many. Get rid of April and September like the minor leagues do. If that had been the case this year, our beloved BoSox would have been 130-0. Or close to that. April is too cold in northern cities and September is football season. Instead, after 160 games, the Sox are now hoping for help from the dreaded New York Yankees to help them secure a post season play-off berth which they clearly do not deserve. How pathetic. Time to let the “boys of summer” play the great American pastime during summer: May, June, July and August. Let the World Series finish in early September, NOT early November, just 2 short months before the Bruins play their annual hockey game at Fenway.  It’s time to stop playing ball in September, just like the Red Sox did this year.
