Gotta say that making the top 4 teams in the NL play one game playoffs for seeding is complete bullshit. The Brewers/Cubs and Dodgers/Rockies played each other 19 bloody times this season. Whoever won the season series should get the higher seed.

Wear them all out with unneeded extra travel and pitching innings!

Was at the Rockies game Friday night, what an atmosphere!


With that said, baseball playoff format is super dumb. 162 games not enough?

Evidently not enough to break a tie in a situation where BOTH teams are going to the playoffs.

Plus side is it gives Yelich one more game to get the Triple crown....1 HR & 2 RBIs short....should be able to fix that with one good swing.
Game 163 may lock in his MVP march.

Most baseball fans love it.
Personally I think it’s great... it doesn’t happen often enough to squawk about it.

A lot better than the old days where there wasn’t a wild card and rarely any drama.
I’m going to enjoy it before they ruin it and turn it into the NBA where everyone makes the playoffs.

They oughta make 'em play a 1 inning game each, ala golf, but in a minor league park. Or just make the NL west the play-in game and flip a coin for the central.

Why isn't there an automatic tiebreak based on head to head records?
just a foil for me today, thanks

Just noticed that this is what's happening. I blame letting pitchers hit.

I said this at the start of the season and stand by it: watch out for the Brewers. They have all the pieces and are hot at the right time.
Lies are a funny thing. They slip through your fingertips because they never happened to you. Time wounds all the heals as we fade out of view
