Awesome news IMO. Love the thought of more playoff teams.

If I was a fan of any non-Red Sox or Yankees AL team, I love it. As a fan of an NL team, I don't necessary like it. It lessens the achievement of winning the division even more.

But overall, it's probably best for the game if a team outside the AL East has a chance at the WC.

Soooo, how will a 10 team playoff system work?

Or are they just doing the WC1 vs WC2 one game playoff to get in?

This is my understanding of how it is going to go.

If anything, it makes winning your division more important.

I'm not a fan of the extra WC team, but I'm not angry about either.

The new divison series format is ridiculous. It is now a 2-3 (the lower seed having home games first). This almost completely negates the advantage of being the higher seed. Frankly I'd rather have the two home games first and then play 3 away.

I read that was only for this coming season though.

That is only for this year. They added the extra WC but didn't adapt the schedule because it was added so late.
