The 2012 Major League Baseball season is less than a month away. The MLB still doesn't know how many teams will make the playoffs. That could change soon. It appears the MLB will add one wild card team for both the American League and National League. The new playoff system would make the wildcard teams face off in a one game playoff. The winner would advance to the divisional round. It will make it much tougher for a wild card to win the World Series. The Cardinals were a wild card team last year, shocking the baseball world all the way to a series win over the Rangers. I think it's a good idea. It all but assures the Rangers of making the playoffs. But if the Rangers want to make a third straight World Series appearance, they better win the division.
