Another fan against expanding playoffs in MLB

Expanding MLB Playoff System,* Podacast:note it may take a minute to load after clicking, thanks for your patience!

       From December 6-9 the MLB owners will be holding their annual meeting in Lake Buena Vista Florida to discuss a wide assortment of things. Many of these items will be done behind closed doors and we may never really know what the real agenda was, or who said what and how decisions were arrived upon. However one issue that is being floated by the mainstream media and Commisioner Bud Selig is the concept of expanding the MLB Playoff system  by adding another wild-card slot for each League.

  After mulling this over with a handful of other Baseball fans and thinking it through I have to say that I think this is a bad idea that will hurt the game we love in the long-run. While I am sure that the motivating factor by MLB and the owners in this matter will be how adding another layer to the postseason will increase revenues which already hit al all-time high of 7 billion last year.

   In my podcast* I will put forward an opposing position and explain why I feel this way. Check it out and let me know what you are thinking through the comment attachment below. Happy Holidays, http://jeffsmariners.com
