NEW YORK (CBS SPORTS) - Baseball’s expanded playoffs could be ready for the 2012 season, commissioner Bud Selig told reporters at SoxFest in Chicago on Friday. “I really believe we’ll have the (extra) wild card for this year,” Selig said (via the Chicago Tribune). “Clubs really want it. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an issue that the clubs want more than to have the extra wild card.” The new wild card round would be one-game playoffs between the two wild card teams. The players and owners have already agreed to the expanded playoffs, with the only question being whether they’d begin in 2012 or 2013. The decision is expected by March 1, according to the Associated Press.
