FoxSports.com and Ken Rosenthal are breaking the story that the MLB, and its commissioner Bud Selig, will announce tomorrow that an additional Wild Card team will qualify for the playoffs in both the National and American Leagues.
It has not yet been determined if the two wild card teams from each league will play each other in a 1-game playoff, or a best-of-three series.
Personally, I feel that adding just a one game playoff between the two teams would defeat the purpose of even having an additional team qualify for the playoffs. Make it a best-of-three series, or don’t add a team at all.
You listening, Bud?
