According to reports from the NY Post, MLB is planning to add one wild-card team to the postseason format in each league.

These new wild cards will face off with the standard AL/NL wild-card teams in a one-game playoff to determine who officially moves onto ALDS play.

There are many pros and cons to this concept, but I am finding a hard time focusing on the positives. This piece will go over some of the main gripes with the second wild card in general, the one-game format and the motives behind the decision.

Feel free to comment and let me know how you feel on both MLB’s idea and the article, and I look forward to hearing from you.
