Free baseball as Michael Kay would say. Talks are under way to expand the playoffs. Changes could take place as early as next season and could include adding another team to the wild card or making the League Championship series a best of seven instead of five.

Personally I don’t feel that they should add another team but I have always felt that you get a better idea of who is the better team in a best of seven instead of a shorter series. The shorter series allows a team to use only three pitchers where a best of seven usually means that you need a forth.
