Coin Flips

Just saw coin-flip results for tie-breaking races in each division, and wild card.  Apparently, the cubs will play a one-game playoff at home if they tie the brewers, or in st. louis if they play the cards.  The cards will go to Mil. to break that tie (but we don't have to worry about that do we) For some reason I was under the assumption that a tie would be broken based on head to head records (which gives us an advantage over the brew, and up to this point the cards) At any rate, I know we all hope this won't matter and that the cubs will win the central without a playoff. Do these coin-flips happen every year and I've just somehow missed it?
