• Wildcard

    I was thinking about the new wildcard rules in MLB this season.  And, then, it dawned on me that the wildcard has been in play for the 17 seasons before this year.

    This means that there are some adult baseball fans out there now who never remember the game being played without the wildcard.

    And, that just blows my mind.

      Yeah, man, you’re old :P

      Then again, there have been so many changes in baseball over a short period of time; when I started watching there were 2 divisions in either league, 7 teams in each division in the AL, 6 team per division in the NL.

      The LCS were best of 5 up until 1985.

      And of all the teams in the league then, only 4 remain in their original stadiums (at least from when I started watching)

      Boston
      Chi Cubs
      LA Dodgers
      LA Angels
