Not a fan of the playoff expansion.

I *sort of* bought into going from 8 to 10 simply because it rewarded division winners, and made division races meaningful.  They should have changed changed the WC game to a best of 3, and left it at that.

The World Series champion is now officially a randomly-selected team from not necessarily the top 12 teams.

Its the word random I dont understand

to get into the playoffs you must win your division or be one of the 3 teams with the best record

obviously thats with each conference which will have 6 division winners and 6 additional teams with the best record combined

where does random come into play

let me just say I dont like having 12 teams in the playoff but its not a matter of it being random

what am I missing

A random selection obviously would be just that, no need for a season at all, you just "draw names from a hat".  I don't believe that is happening.

oam has just said something off the wall as he sometime does

I think he's commenting on the expanded playoffs and how that tends to mean a less capable team can often win.

hey thats baseball

too bad they just dont use reg season stats to decide each game

like a board game

but even if it was only the division leaders playing you could make the same argument

How boring it would be if the team with the better stats always won a playoff game

Yeah, I don't like the expansion but whatever.  As I said in the NCAA Tournament thread, this is all entertainment.  It's a balancing act if you want it to mean anything, but the post season is the best part of sports, namely because the stakes are higher.  Not sure why you would want to get rid of that.
