"The Delayed Season...helps them. The Diamondbacks are maybe the biggest winner of the new format, no longer having to catch the dynastic Dodgers to escape a one-game playoff upside. They go from one of many teams chasing a place in the Wild Card Game to standing in excellent position to win a best-of-three, what with Madison Bumgarner and Robbie Ray in their first two rotation slots."
