ESPN says "Commish: 10 teams in playoffs for '12"

 

 

Commish said:

 

"I would say we're moving to expanding the playoffs, but there's a myriad of details to work out," Commissioner Bud Selig said Thursday at his annual meeting with the Associated Press Sports Editors. "Ten is a fair number."

 

"The more we've talked about it, I think we're moving inexorably to that," Selig said.

 

TOTALLY the same thing.

I've mad my case about this several times in the past.

 

It's really hard to justify expanding the playoffs. Baseball is not designed for tournament-style play (which is what expanding the playoffs signifies); if you demote the regular season more, you are impoverishing the game itself.

Tommy Hutton suggested that teams in the 1 game playoff are forced to use their best starter. How do you define who is the best starter?

 

 

Like every stupid Cy Young voter.

 

Wins.

Felix Hernandez...

 

Oh please, Felix Hernandez winning the Cy Young was like Arcade Fire winning Album of the Year.

 

Because the world gathered up enough hipsters who said "psh, we don't care about awards or fame." and in the end, being a hipster and the sense of being unique ended up not being unique at all. In fact, it became popular to be a hipster.

 

With the attention diverted by Jimenez, it's almost a reverse-psychology win for Hernandez.

Or maybe it was because he was the best pitcher last year and everyone knew it, just like Greinke the year before.

 

Also, not sure what him winning the AL Award has to do with Jimenez getting attention for the NL award from April to July.

Relajate.

 

Arcade Fire also won because they indeed had the album of the year amongst the candidates.

 

That being said, there's no doubt that Lady Gaga (Ubaldo) was the superior artist in popularity and all of the 'critics' thought she should've won. Wins = charting on the radio. Justice was served, as it should've been. That's not to say that it's not completely normal to see the artist who charts the best getting the Grammy. Happens all the time.

 

In short, what have we learned here? Lady Gaga and Ubaldo Jimenez are one in the same.
