Sure, I want them to get in too. However, the wild card is a much harder way to go now than ever. The winning wild card team will have used there best pitcher in the one game playoff, and will not have home field advantage. Up till last year, whoever got the lone wild card went into the playoffs on equal footing with the division winners. Now, the wild card team will be at a real disadvantage. But it will still beat being done...
