Rosenthal: Sources say expanded playoffs a 'go'
FoxSports' Ken Rosenthal tweets today that sources have told him that baseball will expand from eight to ten teams, adding that one-game wild card play-in. This means that 33% of all teams will make the playoffs in 2012. That's a hefty number - not quite NBA or NHL big - and it certainly dilutes the meaning of the 162-game regular season just a bit more but it also adds excitement of fall baseball to fringe teams' fan base who would have otherwise been focusing their attention elsewhere.
Your thoughts: Is this a good or bad thing for baseball?
