Default Has anyone else noticed the AL Wild Card race is crazy?

Division leaders in Boston, Detroit, and Oakland have separated themselves a bit, but the Wild Card race looks like it will be a two-week run for the ages...

Top 6 teams separated by 3.5 games

I can't remember, is this the first year with two wildcard spots?

2nd year.

Baltimore beat Texas in the AL Wild Card Game last year. St. Louis beat Atlanta.

I so hope all 6 end up tied and some team ends up playing 165 regular season games proving how dumb the two wild cards are.

This is playing out just how Bud wanted it when they added the second wild card.

Keep out the Yankees and I'm OK with whoever else makes it.

I personally think it would be awesome if the Royals squeaked in, went on a run through the playoffs, and met the Pirates in the World Series.

We'd have two of the worst franchises over the last 20 years in two of the smallest markets going at it.

You mean extra regular season matches you don't have to pay the players for that will be high yield draws on both television and at the ballpark?

Yeah, baseball's gonna hate that.
