Default 2 division ties

Should make for a couple of exciting games tomorrow. Does anyone remember two divisions ending the season in a tie the same year?

Nope. It never happened before.


nor have there been three 100-win teams in the same league.


...and came within two Tiger losses of having four 100-loss teams in that same league.


Never before have the HAVES and the HAVE NOTS been so obvious.

I assumed the three 100 win teams was a first, thanks for confirming.

Off the top of my head: Whomever these four teams played yesterday are different than who they play today. The wild card teams will play a different team tomorrow. And the wild card winner will start a seven game series against yet a different team. So if I got that right, somebody will play four consecutive games against four different teams...I think.

What about Baltimore finishing 61 games out of first place? That should at least be close to a record.

Close in the modern era. The 1935 Braves finished 61 1/2 games out. The record is the 1899 Cleveland Spiders who finished 20-134 84 games behind Brooklyn.

what happens to draft position if one team played one more game than the other team ..like the marlins played only 161 this year.... so if the marlins had the same amount of wins as another team but one less loss...what happens

i would imagine its possible some teams get 163 games and well while teams in the other league may have the same amount of wins but one less loss etc

1 game to decide who gets in seems reasonable...but one game wild card is pretty cheezy...considering you also now have a sudden death the day or so before....you basically would have to face your first divisional round of playoffs with your number 3 versus the other teams number 1...

should be a 3 game series the wild card

plus whoever wins the dodgers/rockies....will be in the world series

Jake- First, to 'kinda' answer your draft position question, the slot would go to the higher winning percentage team regardless of total games played...however, the draft is such a crap-shoot anyway, one position probably won't make that big a difference...unless they pick THE right one or THE wrong one...ha-ha.

Making the Wild Card game a series would devalue the division championships, but, more importantly, it would extend the season into November...and only Derek Jeter would enjoy that.

I'm not so sure about the Dodgers/Rockies winner being in the World Series....least not as automatically as you imply. If the Cubs or the Brewers get hot, they could easily get there...oh, and the dark horse in the race...who nobody gives a chance...is Atlanta...so, watch out for the 'Baby Braves'!

The Wild Card series should be best of 5 games and all other series should be best of 7. The one game Wild Card is just as lame as the best of 5 Division Series.
