FRSFreeStateNow: Major League Baseball Expands Postseason Format: MLB Moving Forward

March 5, 2012

 

Major League Baseball

Major League Baseball expands postseason format.

MLB is finally moving into the 21st Century by expanding its Playoff System. By allowing for an additional Wild Card team for each league. A Wild Card being a team that makes the Playoffs, without winning their division. Right now both the American and National Leagues have three divisions. East, Central and West and the winner of each division, the team with the best record. Qualifies for the Playoffs and before 2012 from 1995-2011, one Wild Card team from each league would make the Playoffs. The Wild Card team being the best team from each league. The team with the best record from both leagues. That didn’t win their division, the problem with that system. Is the last 5-10 years if not longer, both leagues have produced more then one team. Thats more then capable of competing in the Playoffs. That didn’t make the Playoffs but finished 1-3 games back behind the team that does. So we would see 2-3 teams in each league that were good enough to make the Playoffs. But were a game or two behind the Wild Card team.

I’m glad to see MLB go from 8-10 Playoff teams which is an improvement. But I don’t like the format, one game to decide the best Wild Card team. Is not enough, that should be a three game series in each league. Giving the fans of both Wild Card teams at least one home game. And a better chance to see who’s better. And would’ve gone from 10-12 Playoff teams, both leagues have fifteen teams. So six Playoff teams would be enough basically guaranteeing. That all the Playoff teams are good and the Playoffs actually means something. And leaving mediocre teams out but MLB is moving in the right direction.
