Since joining the Dodgers: .114/.262/.286/.548 w/4 homers in 21 games, 70 at-bats. The team also has gone 6-17 since acquiring Granderson, Their high water mark was on August 25, when they had a 21 game lead, and were poised to break the MLB record for wins in a season. Not anymore, their lead has been cut by more than half, are currently on a 10 game losing streak, and do not have a lock on the NLWD title.

Lose another 10 in a row and maybe Arizona has a shot. I thin they need to do it like football.. Add a 3rd WC team, top two division winners get a bye - the other 4 play in a real series. I always liked the 2 division format I grew up on but a one in done is a dumb idea.

Not fair for a WC team to possibly finish with a significantly better record, than 1 or even 2 division title winners in a league, then face off vs another WC-winning team in a one-shot postseason game. Their WC opponent could conceivably ALSO have a better season record than 1 or 2 division title winners as well.

So IMO, MLB should reduce the regular season by 5-8 games, and allow for @ least a best 2 out of 3 WC round in each league.The regular season once was 154 games in length anyway. In some northern cities, the WS has been been played in downright nippy temps by late October. I remember how chilly that it was in Detroit, on the night that Maggs hit his pennant-winning walkoff 3 run homer vs the A's in '06. I also remember trick or treating as a kid on some Halloween nights, when a sweater or even a coat was needed underneath my costume.

One game win and move on (or lose and go home) stinks.

Side note: When wasn't it cold during Halloween and rain too. I was a Lion (a real one, not the one we watch on Sundays) one year and my mom stuffed me to the gills. I was warm though.. It was uncomfortable as hell though.
