Generally don't like expanding the playoffs in any league, but this is obviously good for the Blue Jays. I'm conflicted.
The best thing to do would be to go back to a balanced schedule (and perhaps even cut it down to two division winners only making it), but the 18 games that NYY/BOS play each year against each other takes precedence over anything else for baseball.

The only teams really screwed in the current system are Tampa, Toronto, and Baltimore. Every other team in the majors has a pretty good opportunity to make the playoffs each year (except the Mets, they're an embarrassment).
