"The only thing expanding the playoffs does for September is guarantee a lower bar for entry. That’s a bug for some, a feature for others, but it’s a certainty for all. Because of the nature of the baseball playoffs, adding teams also sharply decreases the chance that the best team will win the World Series, that the best teams will even get there."
