Interligas: No sería mi preferencia

PHOENIX — Cuando empezaron los juegos interligas en
1997, dije que no me gustaba lo que era en ese entonces una novedad.

Doce años después, sigo con esa opinión, pero con
igual número de temporadas para reflexionar.

Claro, para los fanáticos de Nueva York es bien
interesante ver los choques entre los Mets y los Yankees, para la gente de
Texas ver Astros-Rangers y para los residentes de la vasta área de Los Angeles
ver Dodgers-Angelinos, entre otras rivalidades regionales.

Por otro lado, hay que reconocer que hay otras series
sin ningún tipo de “cachet”. En este primer fin de semana, por ejemplo, tenemos
Rockies-Tigres, Diamondbacks-Atléticos y Piratas-Medias Blancas. Sin comentario…

Pero mi queja con los juegos interligas no es
propiamente con eso, sino algo bien sencillo, y es lo mismo que dije hace 12 años:
El realizar juegos interligas en temporada regular le quitó a Grandes Ligas
algo que era propio y exclusivo del béisbol de la Gran Carpa antes de 1997: El
encanto y la mística de lo DESCONOCIDO en la Serie Mundial.

En los principales deportes norteamericanos (MLB, NBA,
hockey sobre hielo de la NHL y fútbol americano de la NFL), el béisbol era el
único que tenía una separación total de sus ligas antes de la serie final, es
decir, la Serie Mundial.

Cuando llegaba el Clásico de Otoño, uno de los temas
más interesantes era cómo iban a medirse no sólo dos equipos, sino dos estilos
y dos conjuntos que no se conocían para nada.

Ahora los equipos de la Liga Americana ya tienen
experiencia haciendo los ajustes sin un designado, ya que se juegan varios
partidos de temporada regular en estadios de la Liga Nacional. Lo mismo, del
otro lado, se puede decir de los clubes del Viejo Circuito, que al llegar a la
Serie Mundial ya han hecho lineups con un designado en los interligas
realizados en parques de la Americana.

En 1982, fue excelente la anticipación entre unos
Cardenales que corrían como locos y casi no daban jonrones, y unos Cerveceros
que sacaban la bola a cada rato y ganaban a base de poder. El resultado fue una
gran Serie Mundial conquistada en siete juegos por San Luis. Y todo fue nuevo.
Nunca se habían enfrentado.

En 1988 y 1990, los Atléticos fueron vencidos por los
Dodgers y los Rojos, respectivamente, que supieron frenar el gran ataque de
Oakland con un pitcheo eficaz y un bateo oportuno. ¿Quién lo hubiese esperado?
Claro, nunca se habían enfrentado.

En 1995, fue de lo más interesante anticipar cómo
reaccionaría la gran artillería de los Indios (Belle, Ramírez, Thome, Murray,
etc.) ante un pitcheo fuera de serie de los Bravos (Glavine, Maddux, Smoltz,
etc.). Al final se impusieron los brazos de Atlanta. Y por supuesto, nunca se
habían enfrentado.

Ya no hay tanto misterio. Hay demasiada experiencia
uno contra el otro, sea en series particulares del mismo año, de años
anteriores o simplemente el hecho de haber jugado en estadios de la otra liga
con las reglas correspondientes.

¿Se imaginan hasta lo más emocionante que hubiese sido
la “Serie del Subway” del 2000 entre los Mets y los Yankees si hubiera sido la
primera vez que se enfrentaban en la historia? Pero claro, venían con cuatro años
de series interligas.

En fin, sé que los interligas son parte del progreso y
que rinden sus frutos y beneficios para los fanáticos, pero como aficionado yo
también al fin, hubiese preferido que conservaran esa mística de lo desconocido
para la Serie Mundial.
