Posted Tuesday October 09, 2012, About: Split doubleheader Wild Card series?
Before 1995, the emphasis was on winning the division. If that's what Baseball really wants, then throw out the wild card(s) all together. But that's not what baseball wants. That's just MLB's excuse for screwing up. The Atlanta game proved why this won't work in the future.
What MLB wants is to milk the fans for every dime they have. Through tickets sales and tv broadcasts. Baseball is a sport fans follow for six months; it's not football which plays 16 games. The sport is built on winning or losing a series. The 2012 post season will be a black eye on MLB for years to come. And the Atlanta game proves it. I believe fans were more frustrated with the situation their team was in than the call by the umpire; 6 months of following their team just so MLB can kick the fans in the gut. Every baseball team has a bad game or a bad inning. If this is where baseball wants to go, with a due or die wild card format, they will lose fans instead of gaining them.
