Anyone else think going to a 10 team playoff is moronic? The 2 wildcard winners play a 1 game playoff? Thats not baseball, I mean they play series of 3 (sometimes 4) all year .. and at the end no matter who has the better record it comes down to just a single game.. This could be who has the better pitcher not who has the better pitching staff and thats stupid

I understand why they wanted to up the amount of playoff teams, I have been saying for a long time they needed to.. but they needed to nut up and go to 12 team playoff with byes (you play 162 games, you could probably use a week to rest your arms) OR go 10 but the Wildcards play a 3 game series

Yeah Im glad they expanded the teams and the 1 game doesnt bother me 2 much. If u dont want to be in the 1 game playoff then win the division.

no see I disagree.. Wildcards could be separated by a lot of games.. An Example:

Wildcard Team 1: 93-69
Wildcard Team 2: 85-77

So Team 1 played 162 games and showed that they are the better overall team .. just to have that all swiped away and face (let's say) Verlander. Baseball should never come down to 1 game, UNLESS its the last game of a SERIES

Yep, i've voiced my displeasure with the new wild card system. All for one night of do or die baseball they put the Braves ass on the line against a team they are 8 games better than, Baseball needs to realize even the Astros can go in there in a one game playoff and potentially pull an upset against a team like the Braves. Baseball is not a game where the best team can be decided with one game. I hope if the Braves lose there is a major shitstorm that causes them to nix this, but i doubt it.

I do agree with increasing playoff teams though.. MLB needed to increase their fanbase and that will do it.. keeps people interested down the stretch with more teams bidding for the playoffs.. and like every sport, you have the bandwagon fans that really start paying attention during the playoffs .. Playoffs increase revenue for teams and MLB big time..

Look at the Rangers 3 years ago to now.. Record Attendance

I hope it blows up too .. but I hope it makes them go to 12 teams instead of going back to 8 .. but you can see how long it took them to consider just adding 2 more teams .. 3000 years

I'm not a fan of the 1 game playoff shit. The only way I would enjoy it is if the Yankees got outed in the 1 game series.

The toughest game is finishing off a team and every clinching game is at the higher seed's stadium. There's no "Stealing home field advantage" here.. if the Tigers are going to win they will have to put the Dagger in at Oakland..

Not saying I like it but I see whats going on here.
