BUD SELIG INCLINED TO ADD TWO WILD CARD TEAMS
Wed, 01 Feb 2012 12:39 PM EST

Bud Selig, Commissioner of Major League Baseball expects baseball to grow its playoffs this season.

Players and proprietors have already concluded to adjoin a further wild-card team in each league but are still deciding maybe it would most likely take impact this year or in 2013. Commissioner Selig said there are scheduling matters to be worked out – apart they are the brand new 10-team creation would start with a1-game playoff. Football scores

“I really feel we’ll have the wild card for 2012, this year,” Selig declared Friday night in Chicago at a White Sox fan holiday. “Clubs actually need it. I don’t think I have ever seen an issue that the clubs want more than to have the additional wild card this year.

“We are working on dates right now. That’ll all happen. It’s to me like we’ll have it because I have told everyone we’ve got to have it. It’ll be exciting. One-game playoff, it will start the playoffs in a very exciting way,” he revealed.

A little more than 2 months before Opening Day, Major Baseball expected to put an end to uncertainty.

Add a bat or an arm to challenge for that extra wild card? No telling whether or not that makes any sense.

“That’s the last thing that worries me,” Cleveland Indians manager Manny Acta expounded this week. “I’m attempting to win my division and I cannot get stressed over that stuff. But the more the merrier. Baseball scores

“It provides us and everyone else an improved chance to make the playoffs. But it is not on my thoughts as you don’t build a program or build a team counting on the commissioner is going to modify the playoff format,” he revealed.

Major League Baseball and the players ‘ organization have reached an agreement that ties for division titles will be broken on the field under the new playoff format, somebody acquainted with the talks claimed. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because a deal hadn’t been completed.

Since 1995, head-to-head record has been utilized to figure out 1st place if both teams are going to the postseason. But with the start of a one-game, winner-take-all wild-card round, the sides concluded that the most significant difference between first place and a wild-card berth is too crucial to choose with a formula, and a tiebreaker game would be played.

Negotiators plan to talk again next week and decide by March first as to whether the additional round will commence this year.

“I think most clubs at that point no matter of who you are targeting attempting to win a division,” Detroit Tigers CEO Dave Dombrowski said. “If that doesn’t work, then you make your adjustments.”

Under the new format, whenever it begins, the non-division winners in every league with the two best records will be the wild cards, meaning a 3rd-place team could for the 1st time win the World Series.

Being able to finish 3rd and still go to the postseason could assemble more of a chance in the American League East for groups aside from the rich New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, or in the American League West, where the 2-time champ Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Angels have spent tons of money to get better.

In the American League Central, Kansas City general manager Dayton Moore watched Dombrowski add Prince Fielder to his already prodigious batting order this week.

“We are focused on putting the most impressive team on the field we will be able to challenge to win the Central. That is the 1st aim,” Moore said. “If that seems to be unattainable, we’ll review what we need to do to improve the team to strive for that goal. If it turns obvious that’s not going to happen, you start to focus on the wild card. You need to get in the playoffs any way you can and take your possibilities there.”
