Year One of an Extra Playoff Team, an MLB Success Story

For the 2012 season, Major League Baseball added a second wildcard team, seeking to maintain a bunch of teams’ hopes
(and attendance) until the very end of the season.

Lo and behold, with a week to go in the baseball season, and in addition to the six division leaders and two wildcard leaders, EIGHT teams, four in each league, are alive for the last playoff spot.

Which means that, with a mere six games to go in the 2012 season, more than half of the league is either in the playoffs, or still alive for a post-season berth.
