MLB Announcing that they are adding another team to the post season mix starting this year.
If I read it correctly, it sounds like it is going to be a one game playoff between two wild card teams, then what we've come do know as the "regular" playoff system starts with the ALDS best-of-5 gamer, and ALCS best-of-7.
There is always a tug of war between the baseball traditionalists and the baseball needs innovation crowd.
This is a change as of now anyway that I don't particularly care for and would have preferred to see the ALDS expand to a 7 gamer.
One positive I see to this is that it will further dilute the you need to spend money in baseball argument as it expands the field of particpation in October.
Now, we could have a third place team, get hot, and go on a run, much like the last two Super Bowl champions have done.
More excitement or yawner?
