Again, why does baseball have to accommodate the NFL here? I don't see how sticking with their schedule is "sticking it to the NFL".
And I'm just going to stop since you think the NFL will schedule that first game the 49ers @ Jets.
I didn't say they would, my point is that starting the season with that Thursday Night at home is an advantage that should go to the Super Bowl winner. Therefore, the Super Bowl Champ should get that game. And, when the NFL first started opening the season on Thursday Night the games were garbage, they were San Fran-Jets and then it was Jet-Redskins. Back when those teams sucked. Last thing I want to see is the NFL going back to garbage like that to open the season.
