Change. It's weird. Ken Rosenthal reports that his sources are telling him the MLB playoff system will indeed expand to include an additional wild card team this season. On one hand, the Phillies have to make the playoffs now, but on the other hand it could allow some "lesser" team who may get hot at the right time beat them. How do you feel about the likely change?
Sources: Additional wild cards a "go" for this season. Playoffs to expand from eight to 10 teams. Announcement tomorrow. #MLB

From a Phillies standpoint, they probably like 10 playoff teams. Greater importance given to winning division.
