POST SEASON TALK

A question was asked to me by my newfound friend Jaq from http://atlbravesfan.mlblogs.com about one of my pictures from my recent trip from Atlanta about the Braves 14 consecutive division titles and the question was , if not for the current format of post-season play of 3 rounds, the LDS, LCS, and the World Series, if I thought the Braves would have won more than 1 World Series title ? 

That’s a good thought, though I feel the flip side to that would be how many teams that failed to make post season play under the old 2-divison format could have won World Series titles if the Wild Card had been in effect back then, especially since there have been 4 wild card qualifiers who have won the World Series, ( Marlins 1997 and 2003, Angels 2002, Red Sox 2004 ) .  And if we really want to go back in history, how many 2nd place finishers would have won if it wasn’t just the league champions who qualified for post-season, which, back in the day, was the WS?
