Lew Wolff has a way to shorten baseball’s postseason: Make the first round best-of-one. "I’d make it one-game-and-you’re-out for the first series," the Oakland Athletics owner said Wednesday. "It would be exciting. It would be great."
"I’ve always thought a one-game wild card (playoff) would be a pretty good idea," said Bob DuPuy, MLB’s chief operating officer. "Lew is an imaginative fellow and has a lot of good ideas."
The playoffs are a crapshoot as it is, to make the 1st round only 1 game is unthinkable in my mind.
