Either way that's just ****ed

You have a 6 game lead on a team and yet b/c the MLB wants to out do it's own stupidity of the ASG determining WS homefield, you decide that 6 game lead doesn't exist and play a tiebreaker game and then THAT happens.

Hopefully this is a quick end to that experiment.
I'm a huge fan of the second wild card. Before this year, the wild card and the division winner had no real difference. Sometimes, the Wild Card got the better matchup ignoring the seed numbers.

That being said, a 1 game playoff is the stupidest idea I've ever seen. How can you take two untied teams who have played every day, 162 games over 6 months, and summarize that into one game. ONE GAME.

One game playoffs are incredibly exciting to break ties. They should not be used to determine who advances when one team is better than the other. This needs to be 3 or 5 games, even if that involves shortening the season by a week or two, or it needs to be eliminated. It's just not fair to the Braves who just lost 6 months of baseball to a terrible umpiring mishap.
