I absolutely love the idea of that first day being a doubleheader.I will have to dig it up but I know Francona had an idea about what he would do if he had to tweak the playoffs.
The season is shortened about 8 games and playoffs started a week early. No more Nov. baseball. Also allowed a few more off days in the year.
The wild card game becomes a best of 3 series with all games at the better seed's home.
Games 1 and 2 are a double header, game 3, if necessary, is the next day. Winning wild card team gets one day to travel for next series. Series allows more chance for best team to win instead of team with best pitcher. Series also helps the the top overall seed because winning WC team has to use at least 2 of their starters before moving on to the divisional.
Again, not 100% sure if this is what he said but will update when I track it down.
