Personally what I'd like to see is that the 8 "playoff" teams play a total of 28 games each against each other (each team plays every other team 4 times). It would also be done in 30 days so that it would be similar to the schedule during the regular season. The team with the best record during those 28 games would win the championship.
I don't want endless playoffs. Devalues the RS. Baseball is the one (American) sport where the regular season has meaning.
In any case, the higher seed doesn't always have the best record.
