Bud Selig wanted to add a second wildcard to each league, and we knew that it was going to happen. The only remaining question was whether the change would be implemented for the upcoming 2012 season or would wait until 2013. According to Ken Rosenthal, the expanded wildcard is “a go”, and MLB will announce the new format tomorrow. (unless of course, it is not announced tomorrow, but it might be). Remaining questions still exist, as I discussed earlier, of whether they will make it a 1-game playoff between the two wildcards, or a 3-game series.
