MLB is considering making changes to the playoff format, and they are, uh, really interesting. To sum it up, they want to expand the number of teams that make the postseason by expanding the wild card round. Also, the wild card teams with the best record would get to select their opponent. That last part sounds dramatic, but otherwise, do we really need half the teams in MLB making the playoffs? Is this just a ploy to get people to stop talking about the Astros?

Fun Questions

  1. What do you think of the proposed playoff changes?
  2. What is the best ice cream brand (and flavor) you can find at the grocery store?
