Inter-league baseball games have their charms, but there is a tradeoff

This is the first weekend for inter-league games in baseball this season, and there’s been plenty of buzz in a number of places as neighboring franchises like the Reds and Indians, Athletics and Giants, and Yankees and Mets fight it out.

But my heart sank a little when I heard that the Cubs were playing in Fenway for the first time in 93 years. I guess none of us can stop progress, but the traditionalist voice in my head says it’s a real shame that the Cubs and Red Sox are playing one another in Fenway in May. If all were right with the world, they’d be playing each other in October in the World Series.

  1. Maybe they will play each other in October (or are we now into November?)
