4 of 17 games out of conference is more than plenty. Honestly, 4 of 16 was already almost too much.

The reason people say the baseball season is too long say it because it is true. In my memory, the season started on the second Tuesday in April and the regular season was over by the end of September. The world series took maybe ten days and it was over by Oct. 10, say. Now it can start in late March and extend till the end of October. And in those good old days, Sundays and major holidays always had doubleheaders so there were lots of days off. With 162 game seasons and no doubleheaders, there are hardly any days off. Can you imagine playing a world series game in Minneapolis at the end of October? How did the allow them to replace their covered stadium with an open-air one? Baseball cannot be played in a snowstorm.
