Trevor Bauer destroys Rob Manfred over radical Major League Baseball postseason proposal

Trevor Bauer destroys Rob Manfred over radical Major League Baseball postseason proposal”

Cincinnati Reds' pitcher Trevor Bauer blasted MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred on Monday as being clueless about baseball after a report said the league was looking to expand the playoffs by adding two wild card teams in each league.

The appeal of the changes, according to the New York Post, which first reported on the possibility, is twofold. Among the changes would be expanding the number of teams who qualify for the postseason, as well as allowing certain clubs to pick their opponent.

The division victor with the second-best record would select its wild-card opponent from the three wild-card winners not hosting a series. The division victor with the second-best record gets to pick its playoff opponent for a best-of-three series, which replaces the current wild-card format.

MLB is seriously weighing a move from five to seven playoff teams in each league beginning in 2022, The Post has learned. Another twist is that the two division winners and the wild-card team with the best record of the four would each host all the games of a three-game series in the first round. Also, MLB wants to make the regular season more meaningful by having the regular season series between two teams serve as the tiebreaker in the event that two teams finish with the same regular season record.

Sherman reports that the regular season series between teams would be used to solve tiebreakers at the end of the season, eliminating the need for a 163rd game.

A strong argument also could be made that no tweaks to MLB's postseason format are needed.

The final matchup would pit the wild-card victor with the best record against the wild-card team not yet chosen.

Now, however, Major League Baseball appears to be considering arguably its most aggressive change (s) in quite some time, and as a result the postseason picture may look drastically different as soon as 2022.
