In response to Leftfielder61's comment:
I would add the worst part of interleague play is two sets of rules DH/No DH. If there is going to interleague play everyday like we have now there needs to be one set rule on this. Its crazy that who can and can't play is based on where you are playing.
once again I don't see a big deal here
it's fair it's the same for everyone
edit: everyone who doesn't have ortiz
As far as the Wild Card goes the LDS series should start the next day after the WC game so that the wild card team doesn't get to use their WC game pitcher as early as game 3. As it is setup now there is little penalty for not winning your division.
that would be better
but what a mess it would make
if there was a 3 way tie or rain
Rain outs are rare and a 3 way tie is even rarer. if something like that happens then you just have to adjust, but most seasons you will get a better experience
The RedSox finished 6 games ahead of the Rays in the regular season, their reward should be more than one extra home game.
why don't you ask texas or clev if that was the only reward
The idea of the wildcard is that it is suppose to be a tougher road. Winning the wildcard game shouldn't put you on near equal footing with the division winner
