Major League Baseball makes off-day changes in middle of LCS

There had been a lot of talk during the off-season that Major League Baseball would make changes in the off days in the postseason.

The awkward off-day between Games 4 and 5 of the league championship series, will be eliminated. Instead, there will be another off-day between the division series and the start of the LCS. That’s the word from the commissioner’s office on Wednesday.

The overall length of the postseason will not be shortened and the first round will remain a best-of-five at least through 2011.

Without any rainouts, this year’s switch will make it more difficult for any team to get through the best-of -seven LCS with only three starting pitchers, as the defending world champion New York Yankees did in 2009.

The off-day was among the four baseball added for the Fox network who wanted the World Series to open on a Wednesday rather than a Saturday, usually the lowest-rated night of the week.

This year’s division series starts October 6, and the National League team with the best record will likely be the one that decides whether it wants the eight-day division series. The American League Championship Series starts October 15, with the National League Championship Series beginning the following day. The World Series opens on Wednesday, October 27, and Game 7 would be scheduled for November 3, the second straight year it could extend past Halloween.
