Should mlb change their playoff format like the nba?

it seems that barely anybody goes inside the playoffs. only 4 teams in each conference goes inside the playoffs. in the nba, 8 teams on each conference goes inside the playoffs. I think MLB should change the amount of teams allowed in each conference to be 8. Here's why. 1. More games in the playoff season.... show more it seems that barely anybody goes inside the playoffs. only 4 teams in each conference goes inside the playoffs. in the nba, 8 teams on each conference goes inside the playoffs. I think MLB should change the amount of teams allowed in each conference to be 8. Here's why.

1. More games in the playoff season. It seems kind of odd that the nba has more playoff games than the mlb even thought the mlb has twice as many in the regular season
2. More underdogs can win the playoffs. Look at the 94 Rockets where they were the sixth seed.
3. More teams in the playoffs mean more fans watching the playoffs, resulting in better ratings.
3. *MOST IMPORTANT ONE* make every team who deserves to be in the the playoffs be in the playoffs. There are weak divisions and strong ones. Strong ones might have a few teams that have better records than the weak division's best team. the weak division's best team is allowed to be in the playoffs while the others teams, fighting for the wildcard, can't even though they had a better record than the weak division's team. that does not seem fair.


-they should let the best teams from each division to be selected in the playoffs and another 5 teams with the best record to be entered in the playoffs too for each conference. DO YOU AGREE OR DISAGREE.with this new format
