Major League Baseball to Expand Playoffs in 2012
There are two ways you can look at this situation where the #4 and #5 teams in each league will play one game where the winner meets the #1 seed. On the plus side it gives more meaning to the pennant race. But there is some injustice if say the Red Sox in the AL east win 100 games while the Yankees win 105. For arguments sake, the winner in the AL West could win 92 games and not have to play that extra game. I just think major league baseball is out for the almighty buck. This means two more games will be on national television generating more revenue.
