  • The team that loses the Wild Card play-in game

    Will they be considered a playoff team, or will only the Wild Card play-in winner be a playoff team?

    Oh strictly speaking they're a playoff team. Woo hoo!

      I guess they would be, but it will be kind of a reversal because in years past I don't think that the loser of tiebreaker game #163 was considered a playoff team.

      I know that's not what the one-game playoff is, but it seems to be what they're trying to emulate (Rockies-Padres in 2007). So, a little bit of a change at least in my mind.

        This format is stupid.
        The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.

          Yeah...technically. MLB will probably make "we made the playoffs" shirts for both teams.

            Who knows how it will actually work out, but the Padres are not considered to be have been a playoff team that year they got robbed, I mean, lost, in that playoff game in Colorado.

              That's because that was a regular season game to decide who made the playoffs. This one-game playoff decides who moves on to the next round of playoffs. It is a playoff game, for what that's worth.

                of course the loser of that game won't particularly enjoy it.

                  The game should be considered a play in game. Meaning you are playing that game to get in to the playoffs

                    But "playoff" tickets can be sold for more money!

                    Therefore, it is a playoff game.
                    My top 10 players:

                    1. Babe Ruth
                    2. Barry Bonds
                    3. Ty Cobb
                    4. Ted Williams
                    5. Willie Mays
                    6. Alex Rodriguez
                    7. Hank Aaron
                    8. Honus Wagner
                    9. Lou Gehrig
                    10. Mickey Mantle

                      This round should be a best-of-3 series (all 3 home games go to the team with the better record).

                          I think it should be at least three game series none of that BS one game elimination crap.

                            Those times when an extra game is added to the schedule to decide a division winner or wild-card team I would not consider a 'post-season' game, simply because they are not 'post' season. With the new format, I would consider it a play-off game because both teams will have completed the regular season. But that's just me. If it comes down to the Tigers being one of those teams, I want to be able to tell everybody (especially Twins fans) that the Tigers made the post season in 2012.
