Farrell Takes Bold Position On WS Home-Field

Major kudos to Red Sox manager John Farrell for confronting the 300-pound All-Star Game elephant in the room. Farrell is advocating an alternative to using The Midsummer Classic as the determinant of home-field advantage in the World Series. He would prefer the much more rational formula of overall interleague record. Said Farrell today, "My preference, personal opinion, I think the overall record in interleague play would be more representative of who deserves home-field advantage." This is something we have advocated for a long time and are glad to be joined by a bit more influential voice.
