This has been compounded that the season was moved up by about a week because of the new contract with the players that wanted more off days during the season.
I'm a baseball traditionalist, so I would like to see the season go back to 154 games, like it was prior to 1961 (I think 1961). I really don't think it would hurt total attendance much, as you would lose games on the front end in colder weather/kids still in school. It would cost each owner 4 home games/8 TV broadcasts. But like the other day, the White Sox had 971 actual bodies in the stadium for a game when it was like 35 degrees. But I'm guessing the shorter schedule won't happen.
