How the Astros may prompt desperate MLB to make postseason overhaul

MLB is toying with the idea of changing the format of the playoffs which would include a selection show and 7 teams making the playoffs from each league up from the current 5.

ESPN 97.5's Joel Blank shares his thoughts on the proposed format and questions if this new proposal is just a tactic MLB is implementing to distract fans from the sign-stealing scandal.

MLB Network's Jon Heyman is reporting that starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi and the Astros have agreed on a 2-year year contract with a 3rd-year player option. Odorizzi is 30 years old with a 3.92 career ERA. This signing seems to indicate Framber Valdez will miss significant time with a fractured left ring finger. But overall, the Astros rotation is looking good with the addition of Odorizzi, and hopefully Valdez will return to the rotation at some point this season.
