The End Of Coin Tosses?

MLB is considering eliminating coin tosses as the basis for potential end-of-season tiebreakers.
"The team that performed better against the other team I think is the one that deserves to have home-field advantage, not an arbitrary coin flip," San Diego Padres general manager Kevin Towers said Thursday as the annual GMs meeting ended.

MLB staff is drafting a proposal for the GMs to consider next month when they gather at the winter meetings in Las Vegas, according to Jimmie Lee Solomon, executive vice president of baseball operations in the commissioner's office. Head-to-head record between the tied clubs appears likely to be the first tiebreaker.

With such a system, the site of tiebreakers might not be known until the last day of the season.


I hated the coin toss idea to begin with, it seemed unfair to let chance decide who gets homefiled advantage when deciding a possible playoff spot. Head to head record should be the way to go. Good stuff. nice blog man
