It's Not Special Anymore

As many of you know, I'm not a big fan of interleague baseball. It plays havoc with team schedules, and everyone plays a completely different schedule as well.

But these Mets-Yankees series have definitely lost their luster. And it has nothing to do with the teams, as both as good right now. But they don't need to play two series and six games a year. Both teams want it, as it is six guaranteed sellouts, and both teams make lots of money off of it.

There's just nothing special about it anymore. If you want to keep interleague, have the Mets-Yankees series every two or three years, and have just one series that year.

I know I'm dreaming. But you know the old saying, and it applies to Major League Baseball: They take a good idea and beat it to death.
