Yankees/Tigers Game 5 Open Thread

Does it really make sense that these series are five games instead of seven?

I understand MLB probably likes it because there's a new pointless and media-driven aversion to having the season run into November, but intellectually... eh. Basically, the implied justification seems to be, "well, this first series isn't as important, so it's just a five-gamer."

Of course, this is the same institution that wants to go to one-game playoffs, so maybe I should just shut up.
