    Love to see it happen this year, and then multiple times after that, but looking at the big picture, I'd disagree on "long overdue."
    The Rays, DBacks, Marlins and Rockies all were non-existing MLB teams when we last went to and won a World series. They have all been there since we last were and two of them have three trophies between them. Funny enough, the Marlins have never won their division.

    I did count the DBacks and Marlins (twice) as WS winners.

    The Rays and Rocks got thrown in with the rest of the 16, plus the Cubs.

    Personally, I don't find that funny at all. It kinda pisses me off. I think if MLB want to have more teams in the playoffs, then form 4 divisions in each league. But if it were up to me, we'd go back to 2 divisions in each league and only division winners advance. I think if you can't win your own division after 160+ games...you shouldn't be in the world series.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG
