Posted Saturday April 23, 2011, About: Lincecum blasts expanded playoffs
I think Selig's idea is a plus for the players. More players, teams, more cities with a chance to get into the playoffs. How many times have we seen teams 25-30 games over 500 miss the playoffs? The AL East is an example of how being in the "wrong" division can really make it hard to make the playoffs. Easier divisions, the winner gets in, fine, but in the better divisions, a third team can get in if it is that much better than the rest of the league's teams. The percentage now of teams which qualify is just too low, only 8 spots for 30+ teams? That means over 20 teams which are left out. Let's give more team and cities some reason to hope. It would be nice to reduce the number of games in a season, but then we would have to put up with all those * when came to season stats.
