Classic MLB 11-ABC Sports: MLB 1981-AL Eastern Division Series-Game 5: Milwaukee Brewers @ New York Yankees: Full Game
I love the 1981 playoff format that MLB put it to address the players strike from that year. Having the first half champions in each league versus the second half divisional champions in each league. I’m not crazy about a team with the best first half record facing the team with the best second half record. I believe divisional championships should be rewarded to teams that had the best records for the entire regular season. But I like the idea of having 5-6 teams in each league making the playoffs especially in fifteen team leagues that we have now. Because there are more than 2-4 playoff caliber teams in each league every year.
