And even the team that wins the one-game playoff gets its rotation screwed up, might have to use its bullpen - while the division winners can set their rotation with two-three extra days off before the playoffs.

The 2-3 schedule is a joke (although it's not unprecedented, the LCS used to have that stupid format), but they literally approved the one-game playoff after the start of Spring Training. There was really no time to schedle it right. They'd better not have the 2-3 next year when they can, or it basically eliminates the purpose of the wild card playoff, to make it easier for the division winner.
