No no no, not that kind of fixing, the scary Black Sox scandal kind. You know, fix = improve. Tom Verducci has several ideas in his Sports Illustrated cover story this week. Buster Olney has weighed in, arguing for a warm, neutral site. Several local writers demanded a shorter baseball season.
I wrote about the subject too, in my Metro column last week, arguing that the problem is really with awful baseball coverage that fails to engage fans. I got a fair amount of mail in response, and this week’s column is going to be a mailbag of sorts. But before I hand in the final copy, I wanted to check in with my good UmpBumpers and see what you guys think. What changes would result in a better (e.g., more-watched, more interesting) World Series?
