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.
Why wouldn’t they? Winning the wild card is just as good as winning the division.
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.
