Even worse if I heard correctly, the Nationals have to open IN St Louis? The best team in the majors all year has to open on the road??? Wow, they need to get this fixed asap.
I disagree about the play-in. Win your division or you have nothing to complain about. The wild card should be at a huge disadvantage to the division winner.
I do agree that the 2-3 format is stupid. The worse team should not get to open at home and potentially put the team with a better record on the ropes before they get to play a home game.

Yup. Those 3 errors were horrible. And the lack of hitting with RISP.
At least Chipper got a make-up call in his final at-bat.
