It looks like we still might be in for a longer season, but only if we are play-off bound through the Wild Card route. Commissioner Selig has been working on expanding the play-off’s to include an extra wild-card team from each league. These two extra WC teams would meet in a one-game play-off with their counterpart WC team in the same league. The conflict, this season at least, is in the scheduling of the extra game. Next season it wont be an issue because they can set the schedule to accommodate, but this season it might be a bit trickier.
