I think if the new wildcard rule had been in place last year, the Cards wouldn't have won. It would have taken away that momentum. Part of what made last season so fantastic was the miracle of it all. With the new wildcard rule, that's taken away.

I know what you mean, I’d like to think that we still would have won, but I definitely agree that it would’ve take away the spirit and momentum of it all. I wish they hadn’t made that addition but the rules are the rules, and we’ll see how it turns out this year.

New Wild Card Spot…yay or nay?

So it’s official, there will now be TWO wild cards for each league, who will have a one game playoff to determine who moves on. I, personally, am disappointed with this addition. What happened to the fun of suspense?? Remember last year, when the season when down to the very last game?! I’ll admit it, I was going crazy watching that nerve racking game, but the suspense was just so much fun! Think about it, the Braves and Cardinals, along with the Red Sox and Rays, would all have made it to the post season days, if not weeks, before the end of the season and would have had nothing to play for. Not only does this addition take away the suspense and motivation that has driven baseball for so many years, but this one game playoff will force the two wild card teams to use their best pitcher, just to move their team on to the real playoffs. This puts the team at a disadvantage for the rest of the postseason, because they have already used their best pitcher. Also, what if the first wild card was way ahead of the second wild card, and they happened to have a bad day (like every team does sometimes) the day of the playoff? All that we love about baseball could be lost with this new addition, but the rules are the rules. This sure won’t stop the Cardinals from winning 12 in 12!

So what do you think about this? I’d love to hear everyone’s opinions!
