Bargaining is likely to start in the first half of the year on the labor contract to replace the one expiring on Dec. 11, 2011.

The regular season expanded from 154 games to 162 in the American League in 1961 and the National League a year later, when each of those circuits went from eight to 10 teams.

“Certainly some of the players have said either we should shorten the regular season because the regular season’s too long, or we should shorten the regular season to accommodate expanded postseason,” Weiner said, adding that would have “revenue implications for the industry.”

I would be all for the idea but if the league wants to expand the postseason, the regular season has to be shortened.

I don't think there is any need to change the Baseball postseason.
