It used to be that any progress in the way Major League Baseball moves forward could be described as, at best, glacial.

But just as whatever's causing those rivers of ice to recede, it seems MLB's lords of the realm are warming up to a significant sea change themselves.

For the past two years, the game's Commish of Time & Space has been dropping hints about expanding to 32 teams.

Because it's time.

Rob Manfred has floated the trial balloon so often that award-winning sportswriter Tracy Ringolsby has -- the great WC Fields once said -- taken the bull by the tail and faced the situation.

His suggestion is radical. Check it out at The Daily Player.

Meanwhile, Fanorama is sticking to the fundamentals. Take this original t-shirt that confirms baseball is a metaphor for life itself:

t-shirt hit it hard far and often

Can't argue that. And if someone does, an umpire's gonna eject them.

So put it out there for all to see and agree. For only $14.95.

Can't argue that, either. See you at checkout.
