Which is why I think they stay playing playoffs in October. If they go to 7 teams with an extra round that will add close to a week of games. Keep in mind no 1 game WCard this year. Now will they have a best of 3 or 5 first round series? I guess best of 3 not to make top seed wait too long.
And why would you want to do that? MLB needs more exposure not less. These National TV deals are all about the playoffs anyway. Local rules the regular season.
If they add an extra round of playoffs which it looks like, I’m sure ESPN would love to air some more during the non football nights. Deeper into calendar they air more games all nights of the week. Non descript MAC football games.
