Scott Boras Makes Bold Suggestions to Change World Series, Move MLB Draft

Scott Boras, a powerful figure in baseball, spoke at his annual media event.

He proposed changing the playoff format, including the World Series.

Boras wanted to give division-winning teams a bigger advantage in the playoffs.

His idea required division winners to win three games to advance, while Wild Card teams would need four.

Boras's suggestion about altering the World Series format generated controversy.

Many were concerned it would reduce the unique atmosphere of the Fall Classic, which spans multiple days.

He also recommended moving the MLB Draft back to its traditional June schedule.

The draft was moved to July in 2021 to align with All-Star weekend.

Boras has a busy winter with clients entering free agency and seeking contract extensions.

The future of his proposed changes in baseball remains uncertain.
