should be a 3 game series the wild card


plus whoever wins the dodgers/rockies....will be in the world series.

Jake- First, to 'kinda' answer your draft position question, the slot would go to the higher winning percentage team regardless of total games played...however, the draft is such a crap-shoot anyway, one position probably won't make that big a difference...unless they pick THE right one or THE wrong one...ha-ha.

Making the Wild Card game a series would devalue the division championships, but, more importantly, it would extend the season into November...and only Derek Jeter would enjoy that.

I'm not so sure about the Dodgers/Rockies winner being in the World Series....least not as automatically as you imply. If the Cubs or the Brewers get hot, they could easily get there...oh, and the dark horse in the race...who nobody gives a chance...is Atlanta...so, watch out for the 'Baby Braves'!

MY BIG CONCERNS ABOUT AMERICA:

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.
