It is horrible process for this year. They have said it because of the travel schedule that they are doing this. I expect this current format will last one year only. It is ridiculous to put a division winner at an immediate disadvantage against a one game wild card winner in a short series.
So I think by 2013 they will work out some better schedule but unfortunately this year we are stuck with this.
