The Rays were a shell of themselves by the time the postseason rolled around and the Rangers took full advantage of that. They won't be so lucky against the O's. Plus who would want an Astros/Rangers ALCS!!?? I may be in Texas now but I haven't completely lost my mind!This isn't aging very well. O's in a huge hole.

I bet experiencing it in a playoff atmosphere really adds to the appeal though. I've been to the pirates and rangers stadium which are both nice venues but attendance was lacking so it kind of takes away from the atmosphere.I'm really not a fan of the wildcard format with extra teams and three-game series. I think the prolonged break has done more harm than good for the top seeds the past two years. You spend tons of energy and adrenaline clinching a division to end the year and then shut down for a week before playing again and have to ramp back up to game speed.
Outside of the pitch clock rules I really don't like what MLB has done to the game. 12 out of 30 playoff teams is too many for a sport that has a 162 game regular season. Allowing the DH in the NL, the new extra inning rules, not requiring pitchers to throw 4 balls on an intentional walk and 26 man rosters don't make the game better.
