For the second year in a row, the Yankees have advanced to the AL Wild Card Game. As of this posting (September 24th), the Bombers have yet to secure home field advantage, but they are expected to face the Athletics. It’s no secret that I am not a fan of the one-game playoff. I also know that I’m not the only one who feels this way. Many baseball fans have taken issue with the Wild Card Game since it became a thing in 2012. That leads me to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
What changes would you make to the Wild Card Game and/or MLB postseason?
Should the regular season be a few games shorter so that the Wild Card series could be best of three? Would you change the playoff format altogether and let more teams in? Is everything perfect the way it is? Feel free to suggest changes for the Division Series, Championship Series, and World Series too. Head over to the FanPost section and share your ideas. We’ll feature one of the submissions on the front page on Friday.
How will we select which FanPosts to promote to the front page? Some of it will be subjective. If you follow our tips, you should find yourself on the right track. We will also be looking for FanPosts with comments and recommendations. Depending on the number of responses we get, receiving some recs on your post could separate your FanPost from the crowd. Additionally, if your post has a number of comments then it may have sparked some worthwhile discussions. These are just a few things we’ll be looking for when we decide which post(s) to promote on the front page. We are always on the lookout for new talent, and the FanPost section can be a great way to get our attention.
Submit your answer in the FanPost section before Friday (September 28th) for your post to be considered.
