Happy Birthday, Ryan Braun! + Extra Wildcard?

Slow news day, in the sports world.  I don’t know if anyone gets really excited about the Manager of the Year Award- well, probably the people who win do, but I don’t- and since my Twitter feed always tells me who won the award before they announce it on the mlb.com show, the suspense is non-existent (my fault for looking at my Twitter, but still…).  So I was basically in snooze mode, baseball-wise, until I realized: it’s Ryan Braun’s birthday!  I am a huge fan of his.  So happy 27th birthday, Ryan!  In case you’ve forgotten, I Love U.  And here are your virtual birthday brownies.  Enjoy.

I’ve been reading all this stuff about the possibility of adding another wild card to each league.  Honestly, I’m against it.  What I’ve read is that it would be a one game playoff or a three game series to determine the wild card winner and since a series that short can easily go either way, I think it could lower the quality of play in the later playoffs and detract from the interest of the teams that really deserve to be there.  I don’t think the second wild card team would deserve to be there.  What do y’all think?  Very curious to hear everyone’s opinions on the pros and cons.

    as for the extra wild-card teams, I am against it. Being a baseball purist, I want the top teams to be in the playoffs. There has been recent talk that the top teams are not getting in because they play in tough divisions. Well it is not like that every year. It comes down to money & ratings. Who cares, do what is best for the sport, not figuring out a way to get the Yankees and Red Sox and other top spending teams in the playoffs. The thing that makes baseball so great is that a bankrupt team can make the playoffs and goto the WS. Let the best teams make it in the current format. Baseball has been around for over 100 years, let’s not tweek something that doesn’t need fixing…
