    Tiebreaker scenario question

    If the Reds and the Cards end up tied at the end of the regular season, both for the division and the wildcard, do they still have a playoff game to determine who is the division winner? Or do they choose the team that has the best head to head record to win the division and the other team to be the Wildcard? Like most of you, these playoff scenarios are a new thing to me

    Re: Tiebreaker scenario question

    When two or more MLB teams are tied for a division championship or wild card playoff berth at the end of the regular season, a one-game playoff is used to determine the winner, except in cases where the tie is a two-way tie for a division championship and the tied teams' records are higher than the records of the second place teams in the other divisions. In this scenario, the winner of the season series between the two teams is deemed division champion for purposes of playoff seeding, and the loser of the season series is given the wild card.

    Also, they flip a coin to determine where the tie breaker game is to be held.

    I also think if the Cards are down by a 1/2 game, they will play the rained out game in Florida. Right now, the cards schedule is 161 games due to that rainout, if I'm not mistaken.

    The team you were in the playoff in was from a different division, and both teams couldn't go to the playoffs.
