Trevor Bauer rips into Rob Manfred over possible playoff changes

1. Major League Baseball’s proposal to spice up the playoffs isn’t a hit with a couple of players.

Commissioner Rob Manfred has had talks with the players association about making the following changes to the postseason:

• Seven teams in each league make the playoffs, up from the current five.

• The wild card games are replaced with a best-of-three wild card series.

• Playoff teams are seeded first by division winners and then by teams with the next four highest win totals. (Ties are broken by head-to-head series. No tiebreaker games for postseason entry or seeding will be held.)
