Well I looked it up and 16 times since the invention of the Wild Card the Wild Card has been decided by 2.5 games or less and there have been 2 cases of a 1-game playoff deciding the WC. So I have no problem with this new rule.
But what would make me really happy is if they were to finally make the Divisional Series at best of 7.
Well I was in favor of this. But after seeing how it's playing out I think MLB made a mistake. The Pirates and Braves are in a dead heat. Which would be great if there was just 1 WC spot. But with there being 2 spots it's not so great. Reason being? The Cardinals are already 4 games back, Dodgers 4.5, Diamondbacks 6 and Mets 8.5. The NL WC race is shaping up to be completely anticlimactic at the end of the season.
