Slammin' Sammy: The Wild Card race should mean something in MLB

August 9, 2011

You never hear a father tell his son “Strive for second” or “Do everything you can to finish second.” The same should be applied to Major League Baseball. But it seems every year once a team realizes it can’t win a division, it aims for the wild card position.

There is penalty or drawback of winning the wild card. If a team wins the wild card, they have just as good of a chance to win the World Series as a team that wins their division.
