    Seasons are controlled more by Earth's tilt, not eccentricity.  Depending on timing of perihelion, a greater eccentricity will cause larger temperature extremes. 

    A longer day, or slower rotation, would make a year 243 days long with a leap year every other year.  Not sure it would affect climate significantly.
