Now that the season is winding down and the playoff picture is shaping up, I'd like to hear what you guys think about the addition of the 2 extra wild card spots. -I haven't analyzed what this year's standings would've looked like under the old format, but it sure seems like there are no close races this year. (Maybe just a coincidence?) Maybe we were spoiled by the exciting finish last year. So far, it looks like the only beneficiaries of the additional wild cards are Oakland and St. Louis (and the races for the final spot aren't that close).
