In thinking about how we see 2009 shaking down, I started thinking about what I like and dislike about the MLB Playoffs, and started wondering: what changes would you make to the playoffs? 1. I don't like the rule about intradivisonal opponents in the first round. That is, if you win your division and the team that won the wild card is also from your division, you cannot play in the first round despite your record. So you could have the best record in baseball, and you have to play a division winner in your opening round. I say let 1 play 4, 2 play 3, and let the chips fall where they may. 2. I have a mild problem with the Wild card winner always being seeded fourth, but I can live with it. 3. I think the LDS should go to seven games, but I am not rigid about this. 4. I am somewhat in favor of the WS going to a best of 9. I know, the playoffs would run to Veterans day. That's why I'm not screaming mad about it. But it's still an intriguing idea. 1 & 2 are my biggest bones of contention. Your take?
