I'm afraid it's going to go the other way. There will be 7-8 per league next year. Manfred only sees post-season $$ and doesn't care that it devalues the regular season.Correct. Play-in playoff games are incredibly stupid. There should only be 4 playoff teams. Get rid of the 5th.
If he wants more play-off games, make the Wild Card round 3 games and the Divisional 7 and leave well enough alone.
