While a full Major League Baseball season is 162 games, the first round of the playoffs is only a 5 game series. I feel that this system is inequitable because the length of the opening playoff series is disproportionate to that of the MLB season.
The bolded sentence above feels wrong:
- Would "this discrepancy" work better than "this system" in the above sentence?
- Is there a clearer/stronger way to express the opinion that "X is inequitable because Y is disproportionate to Z?"
