I'm sorry...I read your post and I completely agree, but half the time I was giggling at the word shaft. (side effect: X-I ) Why was this rule implemented in the first place anyway? It's not like this in other sports that have the WC, is it?

This ridiculous 8-team tournament that Bud Selid introduced to replace the playoffs is a farce. The best teams have gotten the shaft in the post season regularly during the Bud Selig era.

He's a complicated man, and no-one understands him but his womaaaaaaaaaaan.





Apart from this issue, which I agree with Snakes on, I think the play-offs are excellent. ;-D
Especially when I have money on the winner like last year :-D (thanks Boston) .

Maybe when a new commissioner comes in in a couple of years we'll get WS home field by best record and play-off match-ups by best record.

well if you feel that way, how do you feel about the dodgers?


The Dodgers have been a very good team since Kent hit the DL.
They had lost 11 games in a row when Kent got injured and in the 21 games he's missed since the Dodgers are 16-5.
