Rangers-Orioles

And

Cardinals-Braves

Will play the 1-game wild card showdown to determine who advances to the division series.

Yanks also win best overall AL record by the way. And as a fan, it seemed unlikely. So happy for the A's too!! And this presidential debate sucks! Ok bye

Never thought my username would equal the top two teams in each league during the same season.

Excuse me while I go drink, cry and pass out.

NL doesnt matter, reds will be in the WS if you ask me. AL is a 5 team crap shoot

I like the playoff picture. A lot of non-regular teams playing in it...thats the way I like it. Teams like the Reds, Orioles and the As making the playoffs is good for baseball.

So does the winner of the Rangers-O's play the Yank's. I know the best record team always plays the wildcard but if the wildcard was in your division, you don't play them in the Division Series. So if Baltimore wins Friday, Yanks would play Detroit and the A's play BAL but if Texas win's, the Yanks would play them and the A's would play DET. Did they change that?

The one thing I don't get...why does the team with the best record start their playoff series on the road? That doesn't seem like an advantage to me--even if they get one more 1 home game...

2-3 format. Only 1 travel trip, instead of 2-2-1
it's just this year.

yes its changed.

Great, cause I always thought that was stupid. Now all they need to change is the stupid Home Field in the World Series based on the winner of the All Star Game and the system will be fine.
