Default Baseball: best playoff races

I gotta tell ya, I don't watch must regular season games in ANY sport except for CFL football. I usually start watching the last month or so of the regular season and into the playoffs. But baseball is by far the most exciting.

Some say baseball should let in more teams into the playoffs. And it must be disappointing to have a .550 or nearly .600 winning percentage in baseball and still NOT make the playoffs, but these races for the few playoff spots are always so exciting. The NHL's Western Conference is usually down to the wire... same with the East this past season, but only for those last 2 or 4 playoffs spots: the top 60% or 75% of the 16 playoff teams are decided by basically March 1.

But because baseball only HAS 8 playoff spots, the races are ALWAYS so exciting, something I've noticed over the past 7 or 8 years of following baseball. If the Jays were always in contention and always missing out by 1 or 2 or 5 games even though they had a 93-67 record, I'd be pissed off every year. But for the more casual fans like myself who just enjoy baseball for what it is.... there's no greater show.

Let the fall classics begin!!

Boston versus New York Yankees will be the best or New York and the Twins.
