Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

No. The truth is you're just bitter, always mad and pissed off, combine that with you hate me, it doesn't take much to realize your comment and claim is biased, and unjustly issued. Anyone can see this. Try again.

Pretty unbiased. Just goofin on an idiot who's talking out his/her ass.

Personally, I still don't consider these "Wild Cards" to be an actual playoff team. To me, you're in the playoffs once you win the WC game.

Andrew Cashner is turning into an ace.

Holy shit his stuff is so good. 100 MPH fastball, elite slider and above average changeup. He's just been dominant this season. If he can stay healthy then he's going to be very good.

Everyone ripped the Padres when they traded Rizzo for Cashner, but Cashner has been pitching like an ace this season and his stuff has always been elite.

If they're going to continue this format, a 1-game playoff simply isn't good enough. Baseball prides itself on having a 162-game season and the length of said season proving that the best teams are around at the end. But now they're saying it doesn't matter if you were 5 games better than the second WC team, your entire 162 games you just played hinges on just one game. I'd like a 5 game playoff, but even 3 would be more appeasing than this nonsense.

Yea but the added WC does add importance in winning the division and rewarding the teams that have been consistently at the top. Also puts importance on the first seed because they are guarantee to play a team that had to use up an ace just to get into the real playoffs. So overall i think the recent changes rewards the best teams over 162 but keeps more teams hopes alive.

It rewards the division winners, sure, but take last year. Atlanta finished 6 games better than the Cards. That's...a pretty significant differential in records over 162 game season to boil down to a one game playoff. To me it's GOT to hinge on more than one game.

yea it is not perfect but i think it is a balanced approach. Traditionalist should be happy that it rewards winning the division/HFA while allowing more teams to compete. I'm not sure what they could realistically do to fix the issue you are bringing it up. A 3 game series would be a nightmare logistically, is game 1 played at the lower seed with one travel day for games 2 and 3 at the higher seed. Also how long those this 3 game series delay the start of the divisional series. Not sure if the MLB wants WS games being scheduled into early Now consistently.
