11/16 Wild Card talks

Major League Baseball GMs spent Tuesday in Orlando, Fla., discussing several topics as they prepared for the upcoming collective bargaining agreement. One of the issues was expanding the current playoff system and adding another Wild Card team. Cubs GM Jim Hendry said he’s in favor.

“I don’t have the formula on how to make it work and I haven’t thought about how it will affect the season or move it up or shorten it or things like that,” Hendry said. “I think it’s great for the fans. The Wild Card has proven over time to be terrific and the more teams in the race that have a chance is great for the fan base. If you can make it work and it doesn’t go too deep into the winter, I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t want more teams involved.”

Of course Hendry is in favor of adding another wild card spot, since he isn’t capable of improving his team’s chance of getting in the playoffs by his general manager “skills” it is only logical that he endorses ANY other means of increasing the odds. And when he says he doesn’t have a formula on making it work…well THAT is believable. It should be on his resume and business card.
