In response to never1954's comment:
I for 1 like it. It does add more value to winning the division. I wondered though (prior to getting into this year) did MLB come up with the idea because, atleast in the AL, so someone other than the RS get the post season opportunity,because they kept getting into the playoffs as the WC. Also, would the Orioles season be cheapened by the fact the RS didn't put a team on the field against the Yankees that could win a game and they didn't get in.
Didn't those same Red Sox lay down in Baltimore before vanishing in New York? Seems both teams received three easy victories, how is one more problematic than the other?
To you and to Pinstripe....very true / an oversight on my part. I guess I didn't mention the Yankees because they ended up winning the division and them dealing with the WC is a non issue. And I do wonder if we really mean lay down or continue to play like garbage.
