WIN METHOD and the SECOND SEASON
Take heart WIN METHOD fans. This is not the end of the world or even signs of trouble. First, we have made the playoffs. The sole goal for every team over the 162 game regular season schedule should be to make the playoffs. Everyone plays an unequal biased schedule with some teams having it easier than others. But, that is the way the present day MLB schedule is constructed. One winner in each division and the 2nd place team with the most WINS make the playoffs. Everything comes down to and is based on WINS and winning. Nothing else matters, no individual stats (except for WINS and Saves by pitchers). Not how many HRs, or runs scored, or BAs. Only WINS. WINS determine the best players and teams over the 162 game schedule. What I am getting at is it makes no difference whether or not you win your division or are the wild card. The four teams all go to the playoffs. The playoffs are where the 'second season' begins. As a team you win your first series and you move to the next, you lose you go home as one of the eight best teams in baseball. Sadly the far inferior national league teams are given equal value equal to the much superior American League teams. Some American League teams do not go to the second season even though they are better than the national league teams who do go to the playoffs. Being the wild card is not so bad and even may be a blessing to a quality American League team. It just might raise the awareness level and stir up the competitive juices of the wild card team. As a wild card team, yes you are a great team, but there are other great teams with the same goal as you, the WORLD Championship. The title WORLD CHAMPION 2010 can only be earned by winning and WINS. Absolutely nothing else matters, no matter what you may hear from brain dead talking heads and the stat fraud fools of the world, who live and die with their fantasy world. In the real world, only WINS determines the best of the best.
