I'm not clear on what 'wild card" means.

For example, the Jays "clinched" a playoff spot but when I look at the standings it shows a "w".

I thought wild card meant teams that are trying to get a playoff spot. It seems to mean teams who already have a playoff spot but are trying to get a better position in their division standings for for home field advantage. Am I understanding this correctly? :confused:

Not exactly. It means that they have made the playoffs but they are lesser ranked, which means they have to play an additional round up front.

:neutral: Yeah, total letdown. 8-1 lead then lose 10-9. Seattle had much better pitching. Great team, hope they go far in the playoffs.

Wow, I didn't expect the Dodgers to lose. With so many wins this season, I thought for sure they were going to be in the final.

Congrats, Padres! :rockon:

My pick over the Phillies. Didn't expect them to get this far.

Drew Smyly on the cubs had a perfect game going into the 8th the other day until this happened. There's only been 23 perfect games in the history of baseball which dates back 140 yrs ago.
