Now we just need the Cards to win and maybe the nagging of Yankees and Dodgers fans will cause a change to the playoff format.

Red Sox and Yanks had the same record so not sure how that would help.

You don't like this format?   I like it a lot.   The rewards for winning the division are high, and wildcards get a crap shoot second chance.   It makes the regular season races much more fun to watch until the end.

I hate the one and done aspect. It’s not how baseball typically is. It’s a gimmick and contrivance. Make it a three game series. Which would still greatly incentivize winning the division.

I also hate the fact that if the Dodgers win, the Giants reward is playing a 106 win team. You could solve that by going back to rule that you can’t play a team from your division in LDS.
Or you could go to what I think would be awesome, letting the top seed pick their opponent in the LDS. Milwaukee had zero incentive to win down the stretch, knowing they were locked into playing the Braves.

The one game format has really grown on me.

I don't like it when it's the Nats I guess, but watching other teams' season come down to that one game is pretty fun.

I like the drama when it’s other teams. I don’t need the stress when it’s the Nats

The one game format needs to stay. Dont know if you need to add a seperate three game series in there, but the one game, winner take all has been a huge success.

Personally, I think expanding the playoffs would go hand in hand with a reduced regular season.

The logistics of a 3 game playoff seem tough.   That's a lot of sitting around for the team waiting to play them, while the winner comes in in full playoff mode and I'm not sure it is much more reliable in picking a deserving winner.     I do think the Giants should get the choice of the wild card winner or the division team with the lowest record.   I think the second best div winner should be safe from being picked.

Kershaw out for the post-season but doesn't have any UCL damage per Dave Roberts.

It's crazy they can have Kershaw and Bauer on the shelf and still have the best top 3 starters (by far) in the playoffs.   And they could be out tonight!

Given I predicted the Dodgers beating the Yankees in the WS, the Dodgers are toast tonight. :)

It would be funny but involves the Cardinals winning, so I'm out.
