From 10 thousand feet, no...... down in the weeds, I think it is.....

1. Basketball goes full blown seeded from the get-go. Not halfway regional, halfway seeded.

2. The predetermined housing of the brackets in basketball does make the travel more feasible because once the bracket is set, you know the path..... you just have to win.

3. Homefield advantage is a real thing, that will have to be in play for baseball because the crowds aren’t such to allow for anything else(short of that town in Nebraska). If that has to exist, and you are set on seeding a 1/4 of the field, the reward of that benefit should be afforded to the next team that most deserved it(not a team that got lucky because somebody else pulled off an upset for them).

Again, I don’t full on hate the idea, I just don’t think it’s really accomplishing a whole lot on the “fair” front...... and if that can’t be accomplished any way, I don’t know that more convenient/less hardship isn’t more favorable than a half-hearted attempt at “fair”.
