Instead of investing our baseball attention in the best teams, the next few months will be spent with this large group of mediocrity, seeing which ones, if any, can rise to an 85-win level. There are any number of reasons to dislike expanded playoffs, but this may be the most frustrating for me, the way it forces us to care more about teams playing .525 ball than ones playing .625 ball.
