Subway Series Scaled Down From Six Games To Four Beginning Next Season
Yesterday in Kansas City, MLB Players Association chief Michael Weiner told reporters that the Mets and Yankees and other interleague rivals will play three or four games beginning in 2013, not six according to a Associated Press report.
“It wasn’t fair to have six games against an opponent that other teams in your division didn’t,” Weiner said at a Baseball Writers’ Association of America gathering.
“The Mets, for example, would say `Why do we have to play the Yankees six times every single year when some of our division opponents are playing teams that aren’t traditionally as strong? We understand we’ve got to play the Yankees every year. That’s OK. Why should we play six?’”
Most Mets fans have been questioning the fairness of the six-game series with the Yankees for years, so I’m glad to see them come to their senses.
It appears that in the case of the Mets and Yankees, that they will play a four-game series in 2013, with two games at Citi Field immediately followed by two games iat Yankee Stadium.
I still would prefer an annual alternating three game series at one venue, but this is certainly a big improvement.
