MLB Commissioner Contemplates Playoff Reseeding in Light of Braves’ Early Playoff Exit…

Rob Manfred, the MLB commissioner, is considering the possibility of revising the playoff format in light of the early exit of the Atlanta Braves.

In an interview with Chris “Mad Dog” Russo, Manfred discussed potential changes to the current MLB playoffs format.

He expressed that the idea of reseeding teams in the playoffs has caught his attention and is something he believes should be carefully considered.

Manfred explained that reseeding could address certain issues and concerns. For example, he pointed out the situation where the Atlanta Braves, with a substantial 14-game lead over the Philadelphia Phillies, ended up facing a team from their own division that they had also outperformed by 14 games. This raised questions and prompted discussions about the fairness of the current system.

While Manfred acknowledged that reseeding isn’t a straightforward solution and may not be applicable in every case, he believes it’s worth exploring as it could address some of the challenges associated with the current playoff format.

As the Atlanta Braves faced an early exit from the playoffs despite their impressive regular season performance, Manfred’s contemplation on playoff reseeding has gained momentum.

However, it remains to be seen whether he will implement any changes to the MLB playoff format. In the meantime, the Braves will need to regroup and strive to overcome their recent playoff setbacks after winning the World Series in 2021.
