Of course, what makes the wild card so wild anymore is that you don't so much make the postseason, but you earn an opportunity to make the postseason in a play-in game. It's really no different from the White Sox having to beat the Twins in a one-game playoff to make the postseason.
But if you're looking for former White Sox World Series stars this postseason, consider that Juan Uribe could win his third ring this year with his third team.
Nobody disputes this. But we all love Game 163s. This guarantees two of them a year. Count me in.
plus St. Louis and Milwaukee
plus NYC parks and Minnesota
plus PNC Park in Pittsburgh
