It should go back to how it was last year.

Should have never changed. The Braves didn't get a "second chance" in 2011.

I read it as they started running on the hit.

(not that the rules matter. umps make it up as they go along)
...no. If you take off on an infield fly at any time before the ball is caught and the ball gets caught, regular fly ball rules apply

your team committed 3 errors and 2 of their runs came after ross should have struck out but was given a 4th strike.

Not only is the play-in stupid, now the top seeded team has to go on the road to the winners of the these games.

So the Nationals (with the best record in the MLB) will travel to St Louis for two games.

The Nats will go on the road to St. Louis for two, and then back home for three. The idea is that the home team can will all the games and the "higher" team advances.

Bull****.

Yeah. Top seeded teams will play 2 on the road followed by 3 at home if necessary. It's because the regular season schedule was already done before they finalized the new playoff format and it had to be this way with travel days. Granted, the LDS all used to be 2-3, but it's still gay.

... yeah, but that was just one game after a 162 game season. Seems kind of pointless.

I don't remember it being anything BUT 2-2-1

Maybe it's been a while. Or maybe I suck at memory.

I agree with Kelly for once. EVERY series in baseball is 3+ games.

Except this one.

They used the 2 away 3 home schedule when the LDS first started. They switched to 2-2-1 after a few years though.

technically they have 2 game series sometimes. Obviously that would not work for a playoff. But they have also had these one game play ins before.

If I remember correctly they used 2-3 when the LCS was a 5 game series also.

Both of you guys are referring to a tie.

The Braves led the Cards by 6 games. The Orioles and Ranger were actually tied, though.

If we wanted to get the best team in football we would have 7 game series. Unfortunately that's impossible as the playoffs would last the whole offseason.

Football BCS games: 8.3% of the regular season

Currently, the BCS games are almost doubly weighted compared to the WS.

No, I am referring to you saying "every series is 3+ games" when that is not the case.
