A one game playoff?
That's a fugging joke.
Make the playoffs and your starter throws a couple bad pitches and you're gone.

I'm on the fence about it.

On one hand, letting one game decide a 162 game season is absurd. As you said all it takes is a bad pitch and it's over. I don't like that.

On the other hand, it gives a LOT more incentive to win the division.
















plus my Nationals play in the NL East and the additional wild card gives us a MUCH better chance at making the postseason :D

This is almost as absurd as the All Star game determining home field for the WS.
