Re: MLB playoffs versus NFL/NBA/NHL playoffs
Go back to the way it originally was in the NLCS, best 3 out of 5 games. As for the NLDS, make it a best 2 out of 3...would make for a much more interesting opening series if your team is not involved, be more fun for gambling as well. I'm starting to show my age I guess but I think that the playoffs are watered down.
I would go for...
LDS-best 2 out of 3
LCS-best 3 out of 5
WS-best 4 out of 7
