Danny Knobler of CBS Sports.com has an interesting and unwelcome report. According to “a high-ranking official” the 2013 schedule may be more unbalanced than the current unbalanced schedule:
In fact, the official said, teams may well go from playing 18 games a year against each division opponent to playing 19 a year. In that case, teams would play 47 percent of their games against teams within their own division.
Which means that teams in the tough divisions will have an even harder time competing for the wild card with teams from easy divisions. But hey, look on the bright side: that’s one more Yankees-Red Sox game for ESPN or Fox to broadcast. And we all win when that happens, right?
