Re: Would MLB Playoffs become more popular if the series were shortened to best of 3?
Going back to the orginal post, def have to agree with some others that a 3 game series may not determine the best team. I don't like the 1 game rub-off either between the wild cards, but thats between 2 teams that shouldn't be there, IMHO. THe Wild card is a necassary evil to keep an even # of teams for the Divisional series, but the format should hurt those teams greatly. (Start the NLDS the day after the Wild card game)
Also agree with the sentiment to reduce the quantity of OFF days, & I would target the Divisional series w/ no off days to weed out the weaker times, but let the teams relax a little at the NLCS & Series.
