Can We End The Interleague Charade? Please?

And so, we have come to the Interleague Play portion of the 2011 schedule. Which means, once again, it’s time for me to get on my soapbox about why this is such a dumb idea. Whatever the reason was to begin Interleague Play, saving the game from the strike of ’94, or getting people to […]
