here's a scenario that could result in alot of drama... if i understand the new tiebreaker rules correctly.
lets say the Yanks and O's and A's are tied with the same record at the end of the season and that record also ensures that 2 of these 3 teams will end up with the 2 wildcard spots. there would be a 1 game playoff between the O's and Yanks to see which team wins the AL East. the loser would then play the A's in a 1 game playoff to determine which team gets the #1 wildcard spot. then they would play again in the 1 game wildcard playoff.
