    Think about this. The last day of the 2011 season was one of the gretaest days of baseball...maybe even the greatest overall day that at least I have ever witnessed. With this format...that never happens because regardless of the outcome fo the games everyone was in.

    But here's what is going to happen. The final WC spot is going to have 3 teams tie for it. Then you have to play 2 elimination games before getting to the 1 game WC game. The winner of the elimination games will then be using their #3 starter. Then if they happen to win, they move on with what is likely a .500 record.

    Anyone can win 1 game in MLB. I hate the 1 game playoff. Either shorten the season and add another series, or keep it the way it is. it's not like the current system is failing.

    For you...yes. but my beloved Orioles helped make it a VERY good day.

    But fear not...your Sawx will be there this year. They would have to add 15 wild card spots for my O's to get in. At least I have the hometown Phillies and the current location Rangers to watch and cheer for.
